I feel the arts and artistic endeavors are the most worthwhile things that humans do. What I do is create what is personally gratifying to myself and others.
I like to think my work is always evolving. I am now building images from recal of a place or object. For example, I recently did a group of ten ,paintings recalling a trip to Paris. I like to imagine a scene from an elevated view giving more body to a scene by raising the horizon. These are not accurate representations but purely the images as I remember them. I am currently trying to elevate the lowly magic marker in an extensive study of small drawings. It fits my technique of very quick, impulsive drawing and color selection. I see these works as no mess, fast, water color or line studies.
