my art work

My work is about discovery, adventure, and an intimate relationship with nature. I am interested in the physical texture of the materials I use, how that relates to the overall image, and leaving an air of the unknown behind for each viewer to fill in. Whether the piece is portraying something in a realistic way, or through abstraction, I do not try to lead the viewer down one specific path. My work is largely inspired by my life as a traveler. Changing landscapes, lines in nature, and the color combinations I have encountered all find themselves somewhere in my work. Much like a journey, my work is about the process as much as it is about the end result.

    A Silent Film:
    I do apologise for this message, but since I am an older dude and refuse to join social networks, this was the only viable option I could find. If you can contact the band and let them know that “Driven by a Beating Heart” made it’s first appearance on KSJO San Jose/San Francisco during their Music Meeting tonight. Only due to the Strokes new song did “Driven by a Beating Heart” not go forward. I have complete confidence that it will make rotation in the coming weeks. It is far too good a song not to. I only included my blog address because you might find it a bit humorous and with a different take on Alt/Indie music. It’s new and just getting indexed etc. Again, I apologise. Thank you.
