Artist’s Statement:

            As a painter, I want to make images that look alive and invigorate the mind, delectable objects that want to be touched, and that are interesting from any distance.  I use a lot of color, texture, and movement, in a semi-abstract manner, so as to charge the imagination.  If a pose or a scene is interesting enough, sometimes I am content to just imitate it well.  Sometimes I like to try to find the more general essence of things, especially flowers, trees, parks, or the countryside.  Occasionally, I arrive at an entirely new treatment of a traditional subject, or even a new subject all my own.  My forte is landscape, especially aerial views, for they bring fresh perspectives and endless variety and fascination.  Such landscapes help me to see a higher context for life, and they improve my sense of the environment and ecology.  I seldom go into complete abstraction, easy and fun though that is.  I still learn more about the world, about art, and new techniques when keeping a connection to nature, while rising above her.  My ideal canvasses are walls -- Murals.
          My mom had me painting the house at 5.  I also did it professionally later, both residential and commercial.  I also painted signs for years, including the big old billboards on the roadside, trucks, and cars.  Later I became a professor of Art History, Aesthetics, Philosphy, and Religions--the Humanities, as well as Painting.  I know paint, and I know eras, world traditions, styles and trends.  I have gone through a few phases of my own.  Currently, I am into the woods and have developed many original styles and moods, mostly Modernist and Painterly.  Now I enjoy mixing and layering them--a path in the woods becomes a cathedral with arches and stained-glass windows, with a beautiful saint/friend, all in spattered color and light.  A mural will make any house uniquely alive and of greater value.  Let's talk.
