ARTIST STATEMENT

Check my website from time to time. It will always be changing. I know that I am privileged to be able to produce art for the purpose of creating an object of beauty. It is a thrill. It is a pleasure to me that someone else enjoys the work I have done.

I am an artist.  Always have been an artist and shall always be an artist.  My first painting was done at the age of four on Christmas day after receiving my first art set that was placed under the tree.  Some memories just stick with you forever, like this one.  My last painting has not yet been produced.

To me as an artist, there is a knife’s edge between order and chaos, between style and ability, between realism and abstraction, and between do and try.  If asked to paint a realism type of photo painting, it would not be done.  A photograph would do the same task.  The desire to demonstrate peer acceptable artistic ability would only be a wasting of time.  To perform an artistic social statement about the realities of the world would be the act of a fool.  When creating an object of beauty, either it is done with success as an accomplished task, or failure is the result.  There is never try with the endeavor of creating a work of art.

There is something deep in us human beings that instinctively knows, appreciates and desires ownership of objects of beauty.  And after all words, excuses and rationale vanish, it is the work of art that stands there or hangs on a wall all alone commanding the viewer to accept or reject it solely upon the viewer's decision.

So my efforts are aimed at making that work of art own the ability to command the viewer's attention, to touch that desire deep in the viewer.  This is my life’s quest. And, as always, I wish all to be well and happy.
