"We don't need to see someone demonstrate their ability (to paint), that's not very interesting.  What is interesting,  is seeing a concentrated vision made with a strange kind of security."

- Sean Scully  (b. 1945)

words to live by

Sitting Pretty, 2013. oil on paper 16 x 16

"An artist needs three things to secede: 

An iron will, the ability to work like a locomotive and indifference to everything but the canvas."

Working Away

Later Reds, 2012.  oil on canvas, 30 x 34. sold

A painting from late last year.  

I continue to explore thicker passages of paint. 
 Its a slow process and the paintings take forever to dry,
 I'm pleased with where I think the work is headed.
