I have been a painter artist all my life. I have also been an artist to sell all kinds of products. A designer. An illustrator and that ilk. I have rarely made money other than by being an artist or by writing.
I thought I was attracted to the Fauvist school of painting in a new way. I have also thought I was an impressionist. On further examining the path of self-labeling I found that almost any sort of landscape or figure, with a painterly look, falls into these categories. Consequently, I am simply me without a school. I am a man without a label to live up to. I don’t seem to have any rules of painting. It is an epiphany that constrains and frees me all at the same moment, ergo, I think of myself mostly as a New (or Neo) Fauvest.
Since I have moved from Virginia Beach to a little town in the mountains of western Virginia I have primarily concentrated on God’s green earth. 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. It heals us and gives us a clear vision to see the important things in life. It takes our written philosophy and shows us the everyday application of the nebulous words. It is the mind displaying itself to whomever looks, and in the end, it is the mind that remains the constant.

Know Yourself.

Be yourself.

Live with art that excites you.
