TTA Breaker

My "Times and Times Again Series" of drawings and paintings were created at the end of the modern period, as it is sometimes termed, characterized by Picasso, et al. I love the loose style and strong instinctive emotions displayed in the thin paint with spontaneous drips and the instinctively charged "slings of paint". Most of all I like the overtones of metaphysical and psychological philosophy. I do have more of these to post.

This series is shown on Saatchi Art only. See link at the bottom of this page.


 

Chesapeake Breaker

Chesapeake Breaker

In a complete reversal of my earlier style, The "Chesapeake Series"of paintings are smaller in size, visually realistic, mostly landscapes of Chesapeake Bay and its near environs, and done in water based gouache. They bring the remembrance of the smell of saltwater, and a sense of spiritual understanding through observation of those who make their living directly from the water.

Butterfly Breaker

These are the paintings I like to think of as "Windows on Nature". They are mountains and farms and birds and butterflies. Nature with the human hand at work to create idyllic scenes we would most likely want to live within and around. I am currently working in this series an am painting almost every day.

This series is shown in various galleries. See links at the bottom of this page.

 

"Painting nature is tantamount to a meditation on the connection of heaven and earth. No matter if it is Mother Nature or created by human manipulation it is the same save the eye of the beholder. So, we paint on as a pure celebration of life itself."
