HOW DO I COME UP WITH THIS STUFF?!
I don’t usually plan my work. It just kind of happens. The experience of making art is sometimes like watching my hands paint and draw. The meanings that people find in my work appear to come from a subconscious place. I never plan to paint a peanut with a suitcase, or a big chicken drinking coffee, for example. Even when I do intentionally repeat a theme or character in my work, something surprising always emerges in the finished piece.
Sometimes I’ll stare at a piece until the idea to add an object, an extension cord, crown, or suitcase, occurs to me. I used to believe that I was just adding these details to entertain myself, but listening to others talk about what the details mean to them, I realize that my work has several possible meanings, like an ink blot. The response to my work is a peek into the human psyche, both mine and anyone else’s who care to tell me what they see.

I did, and very shortly, was informed one of my paintings was purchased by them, a Governors Arts Awards Purchase How cool is that?! The painting they purchased is Birds in Wigs. More about it when I learn more; t…
This commissioned pet portrait went to its new home this week. It’s the first piece to come out of my new studio after our move, and the first painting of 2014. It’s 48 × 24 inches. / The buyer provided quite a few nice photos, and I also used as references my own birds, pictures I’d taken, and actual desert plants which are in abundance here. I didn’t strive to recre…
This past weekend, despite the fact we’re in the middle of moving, I spent the day at Hance Park in Phoenix, Arizona, painting a 6 × 3 ft. section of a mural for the Festival of the Arts! It was a BLAST! There were over 100 artists participating in the mural alone. I wish I’d have had time to go see more of the Festival. There were quite a few booths of art, (in addition to the 1…
