“We must create; for creativity is the impulse that sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. Indeed, one might suggest that the creative impulse is the only thing we have going for us in the toughest times.” — Pagani

Concurrent projects:

Oregon Natural – A series of impressionist paintings,drawings and photographs depicting the natural beauty of Oregon. The paintings/drawings portion of this body of work include watercolors, oils, pastels, graphite drawings plus a few experimental India ink works in the abstract impressionist style I learned from my teacher Domenic DiStefano, with additional influences from the works of Homer and Degas. Ongoing work since 2002. There is a permanent collection of my paintings at The Painter of Oregon Gallery

The Feral Life – A photo documentary essay on the lives of feral cats and their struggle to survive. All photography in this series is done within two feral cat colonies. There are no studio shots or set-up poses, only real life. Currently this body of work is available as a calendar and forthcoming book. Some of this project may be seen here, and documented at the Feral Cat Rescue Project … This work has been featured at the Center for Fine Art Photography and The Pioneer Museum.

Rural Street Photography – Photography project documenting ordinary people living the most ordinary lives; on the streets of small towns, in the markets of rural America, on the boardwalks and beaches of tiny tourist traps – captured candidly and silently. It is observation without obfuscation. Inspired by the works of America’s greatest unknown street photographer, Vivian Maier. A million people have street photography projects going in urban target-rich environments; country people deserve attention, too! Continuing project since 2009.
