Name Breaker

The "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 mystical, metaphysical and psychological philosophy.

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.


"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."
