The Walk

40×60

I have been working on this piece for about 4 weeks off and on. Kept looking at it – thinking thinking actually over thinking the work. Started to fix it – what a mistake – I always know it’s a mistake to go into a piece once it has remained on my walls for some time and I have done nothing to it. I should have said – it is done. But I didn’t – and now it no longer exists it is under lots of yellow. grrrrrr. Anyone ever do that? That was a huge canvas – 40×60. Grrrr

Personal Self and Values vs. Social Approval

Which is more important to you in your art creations, your own personal self and values, or social approval of what you are creating? If you have the liberty to be yourself in a group are you then free? Can you then create something that others would have never thought of and feel good about it?

What happens to “art” when it is part of a social contract?

All this is a personal enterprise – it is real, it speaks to today and our need to rethink individuality in the arts. Our need to value art not for it’s social commentary, or historical documentation but for its stubbornness to still scream out for the individual to speak. The individual is not created through a social collective.

The Marble Game

I have picked up the pieces of the often repeated painted concept of motion, movement, and tried to see them anew, fresh, filled with a new way for life to continue, in perpetual motion, in the circle of life, and put them in my work called “The Marble Game.”

Follow your Bliss

If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is one you are living.


~Joseph Campbell

Childhood Magic

When people ask me how do I come up with my ideas in my work, I describe to them the feeling I get when I stand before a large body of water, I am so small, and tell them that the ideas come from the connection between me and this vastness. I paint possibilities. I paint with as much childlike freedom as I can gather as an adult, encumbered in an adult world. I think – how can I think differently from what is out there and already been done, how can I think like myself, how can I think like the freedom of a child, unencumbered, playing in the mud or a sandbox or going to the magical place like a circus where impossible things happen.

Freedom through Christ

Jesus commands “You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor…” This question was modernized in Star Trek when Spock states, “logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
