All thru’ the day I me mine, I me mine, I me mine. All thru’ the night I me mine, I me mine, I me mine. Now they’re frightened of leaving it Ev’ryone’s weaving it, Coming on strong all the time, All thru’ the day I me mine. –“I, Me, Mine” – The Beatles What is it I spend all my time thinking about? I am pretty sure I’m thinking all the time. The only time I am not thinking is when I am full engaged in what I am doing (excluding things that require thinking; concentrated thinking is different… READ MORE
In 1989, I was 13. In the second grade, we’d done drills in grammar school where we knelt against the wall of the school hallway with our heads between our knees because if an atom bomb fell then that was, apparently, the best position to be in (ha! as if) because the Russians were at war with the United States but it wasn’t an actual war it was a Cold War and that the threat of nuclear war loomed large in everyone’s minds. China was an even bigger mysterious behemoth. But by the late 80s it seems that tide was… READ MORE
When, as an artist, you choose to include ‘the real’ in your work – and I mean actual real objects or even just corners and elements thereof – you know, things like faces or noses or hands or leaves or cornices – you’ve stepped into the territory of ‘having something to say’ because now we are creating relationships. No object exists within a vacuum. All things have some meaning.
I had the pleasure of sharing some thoughts about art, nature, and humanity on InsidetheRift.com “There’s no time for ego games or marketing plans when it comes to art making. It’s just art.

A question I received from a fellow artist:
“I want to sell my images; I have portfolio books, am a shameless self promoter; gallery experience; trade show experience – all I want to do is paint. Who should I introduce myself to? What advice can you give me please?”
“A New Perspective” Acrylic/Canvas 15″ x 22″ A collector of my work, Eben Pagan, commissioned me to paint a portrait of him in my style. I don’t do a lot of portraiture so I enlisted Violet’s help and we worked together on this painting. She is more adept at creating from real life than I am. In that way, we tend to meet in the middle as my approach generally builds up from abstraction. Eben is quite a thinker, parsing different ideas and concepts through his mind in a really brilliant manner. The resulting piece is intended to portray the lens of the mind contemplating a flower and the various ideas and… READ MORE
