Art is a funny thing. Some folks like a sunset to look like a sunset – and sometimes I do too – but mostly I want surprise, and to see that sunset in a way never seen before. It should evoke curiosity, and be interesting enough to check back to see it again and discover something new. That sense of surprise is my hope for each of my paintings. Often, even my abstracts have a hint of place and my other series clearly have theme and possibly story for our interpretation. I like color, as well as what brush, paint, and fingertips reveal – whether on paper, canvas or panel. I enjoy the discovery process of painting and hope you enjoy the end result.
