Paintings Shown at Event
Acrylic on raw on canvas construction, 2009–2011, approximately 30 x 60″
A medieval aging warrior returning from yet another brutal battle, hanging up the armor once again. Not throwing it out, because there will be more battles to fight.
It’s about struggle, hope, and the possibility of resurrection and redemption. See project page for more.
Oil on canvas, 2007, 30 x 40”
Ethereal forms and texture. Dreamlike bordering on surreal. An earlier piece that was moving in a direction I wanted to go with my work. Was an important Next Piece in my painting journey.
Oil on canvas, 2007, 36 x 36”
Bold strokes. Buttery texture. Not so subtle blending. Holding the world in a vast and uncertain universe. It’s about caring, connection, and observation.
Oil on canvas, 2013, 30 x 30”
Strong, sharp playful marks. Working with, and scratching out, the delicate nature of generational family communications. You know, family life…right!?
We’re Buddies, Right!?
Oil on Canvas, 2013 30 x 30”
Bold bright colors, soft but contrasting edges. Close and dynamic personal interaction. Maybe wrestling the way kids …or lovers do.
Oil on Canvas, 2012 30 x 30”
Soft, subtle comfort. Evening in the woods glow. Maybe a childhood family camping trip; the time when you’re all in the tent snuggled-up telling ghost stories and bonding.
