Come join me on my adventure of painting and sketching life. I love driving around and taking pictures of Life on the move. The challenge is then converting those pictures to canvas or board, or cardboard or whatever strikes my fancy or is available at the time.
I was once asked on a message board WHY DO YOU PAINT?.
I paint because I like the feel of the loaded brush moving over the rough or smooth surface, I like to see the colors coming alive on the ground, I have inner demons that have to be exorcised, I can only be filled with what I see so long and then have to get it out, and I want to have in my possession some of the things I see. Example the shiny folds made by light on a dark satin dress and the satisfaction that I painted that. When you see something and a brush stroke makes that exact same thing appear on the ground. And when that moment I get it right the AHAH Evangelical choir of angels singing after a long series of FAIL FAIL FAIL.
Something you want created?, just ask and we can work something out Prices for original works are negotiable.
Want to trade originals? I’m up for that. Let’s talk.
