I don’t paint what I see with my eyes, I paint what I see in my mind. This guarantees me as the artist and you as the viewer there is only one original painting like it on this planet.
I enjoy painting the images that dance in my mind. Many images come and go, it’ the ones that dance the most the ones that never go away, those are usually the fun images the ones that make me laugh that I feel I have to paint. After I paint the image on canvas and the viewer see’s the image and points, smiles, or laughs, it’s a beautiful thing watching them show up to the same dance that was created with imagination.
For those who don’t know, the first thing my father ever showed me how to draw was a cowboy on a piece of paper. When he drew it, I freaked out and asked him to do it again, and he did. I looked on in amazement. Watching my father make that cowboy come alive putting pencil to paper changed my life forever. Since that day, art and the creative process of bringing imagination to life has consumed my world. What you see today is no doubt the end result of that amazing moment in time with my Father.
Art has been a large part of my world for as long as I can remember. I have been applying paint to canvas for over 35 years. It is the challenge of the entire creative process that interests me the most. Bringing ideas from mind to reality, and the journey from beginning to end is a beautiful process. It doesn’t matter to me what it is, as long as it allows me to let my mind run free so I can imagine and explore the possibilities of creating something new for myself and the viewer.
To all the hundreds of artist, art lovers, clients, and collectors from all over the world that have been to The Gallery Store and made comments on my work, I would like to say to each and every one of you, THANK YOU SO MUCH. You have all been extremely kind to take the time to comment. All your comments are very inspirational. Again, Thank you very much.
