statement

Most of my work is a journey, as well as statement of my surroundings. Things happen all around us all the time, whether we acknowledge them or ignore them are always up to us.


I try to record some of mine, but life moves so fast, I just can't get them all, I attempt to nail down a certain Idea, feeling, something I have seen, or story I've been told, an experience that has made a lasting impression..... We all have similar pleasures and fears I attempt to come clean, without spelling everything out, I would rather you try to figure some of these things out, come up with your own conclusion, to have you pay more attention to your own world.


At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings, what you see here, could help you decipher where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.



Not all of it is pretty.

i just read a thought from georgia o'keeffe that basically stated that she had shapes in her head all the time that were so familiar to her that they seemed as though they had always been there. the shapes you create have the same feeling to me. like you know them. brilliant work.

You are right...-At one point or another we all end up in one of my paintings-...it's an interesting journey to connect with them or to dive into what they trigger in our imagination. Love your use of colors.
Hi JB!

Joyce...
what a pleasant suprise!!
you know that I always liked the small story..
the fact that you know there's a story at all, is enough!
thanks
jb


Julia...
yes, its been awhile, but I'm really glad you stopped by, yeah I'm pretty happy with "the string" I seen to be my worst critic when it comes to my paintings...
much thanks

Hey, thanks, fancy seeing you here!!
Well all I can say is that, I'm happy that I trigger something, glad you like the colors, I really use them more to break the comopsition of the work, my mom is a colorist, I tend to be a bit more structial, but if the color is not right I go in and change it.
thanks, can't wait for the book!
