The beauty and power in nature, the animal kingdom, our human world, and the worlds of our imagination cry out to be represented through painting. The feel of applying paint is a visceral pleasure with the end product being beauty and images that draw an emotional response form the artist and the viewer. In my works that are more abstract, many things I intend to be seen, but people see many things in the paintings that I did not consciously paint. It’s all a journey of discovery.
Here are fine art works in Oil and acrylics that attempt to restate the beauty around us or focus the attention on a specific image.
