Visions in the Moment

Hey everyone…

Seems its been awhile since we published on our blog.  Hope this post finds you all well.  Just stopping to catch my breath on a very busy past 12 months.  I finally was able to launch a new project which is all consuming,  but still finding time to make it to the studio.  Here is my latest creation, “Visions in a Moment.”  When I am working on paintings, I really don’t like to use visual references, as its important to see what is is the heart and in the soul.  For me it provides a sense of honesty that we rarey see anymore.   God knows we could all use a little more honesty.  Recently I found a really profound quote from a great american writer regarding vision.  I think it encompasses how a great vision is formed.  

                            “The common eye sees only the outside of things, and judges by that, but the seeing eye pierces through and reads the heart and the soul.”
Mark Twain . 

Always strive to fulfil your visions.  Hope you all enjoy.  More work is on the studio walls and should be out shortly.. take care

Abstract 99

Hey everyone..

Hope this post finds you well.  Been busy with alot of new projects.  Here is my latest creation.  This is a mixed media piece, 48 x 48,  oil and metal fencing on canvas.  Found this bent metal fencing in an alley several months back and was immediately attracted to it..  I have always liked the way old metal can impact and add to the overall composition both subtly and in a dramatic fashion.  In this piece the bent old metal adds to the overall subtleness of the piece. This piece is titled “abstract 99”.  Hope you all enjoy,  i’ll have another one out shortly.  Take care…talk soon
