'Surfers Changing by Their Cars' Oil, 24"x30"
"What is the meaning of doing art for you"?
I paint for many reasons, some unknown even to me.
Fame, fortune, the sheer love of it, the exciting and
wondrous "what if...."
A painter has to be a gambler, has to be able to throw
all cautions to the wind and step off into the unknown,
to face both disasters and the wild rush of the universe.
But the reason that continues to haunt and sustain me is
the right for all of us to hold onto joy; through war, horror,
The laughter of a child.
The beauty of red.
A dogs rough and wild play.
The song of existence.
Painting reminds me of this over and over.
