I’m asked all the time what my pieces mean. I’m a bit reluctant at first to give it all up because I like to hear what the viewer sees. I do give a hint in my titles. Here with "The Tribe" we see a large group of beings at the bottom all lined up seemingly waiting for this story to play out. A large fish in the foreground seems to be feeding on something, possibly them. They are just part of this world showing the cycle of life in this created world. There is of course much more to this story. What do you see?
My paintings are spontaneous at inception as I create my initial piece with a soft pencil and acrylic paint using a small brush. Prior, I stretch and prime my canvas with a base color (in this case blue) as an underpainting to affect my color palette for the piece. The paintings in there own way are very detailed using only small brushes. I layer paint and use thin washes to create varying colors and rich textures.. Although each are different there is a recurring theme, the cycle-of-life in my created worlds.
Each of my paintings should be hung without frames as they are painted on all sides. They are signed on the bottom right side.
