A Note on Framing
the Sun is Shining 18 x 24
As an artist my
biggest thrill is to evoke emotion. A
painting is drama, itís theater, and it inspires emotion. To have
people laugh, cry, get angry, or get inspired when they look at
one of my paintings is a major goal in my work. A moment in time can be stopped on a canvas.
The particular way the clouds pile up on a summer day, the unique
lay of a banana peel, the barest flick of light in a shadowed eye
are moments that are breathtaking. The challenge is to make those
moments transcendent and beautiful. After about 50 years of messing
about with paint it still awes me to mix a little of this color and
a little of that color, dab it onto a canvas and make a painting
that can be enjoyed time and again, sometimes for years.
Just as an actor needs an audience, so do I.
is in this spirit that these paintings are offered for your enjoyment
in this Cyber Gallery. Thank you for coming in, and if you like what you see
drop an email to let me know if your day has been enriched.
