STATEMENT

I'm a multi-faceted expressive artist. I work in ink, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, oil, and various combinations of them.  I express visions I see in my mind's eye as in the golden aura surrounding the businessman at his desk in the oil "Essence of Ismael." I express my feelings visually as in the oil "Emerald Joy" which expresses ecstasy as depicted by the perfectly balanced (I feel emerald green as the color of balance.) pose of the ballerina lifted high on one hand of her partner in a burst of white light. I express the beauty of subjects in nature as in the oil "Florida Sunset" with its patchwork quilt sky of dusty purple clouds, coral, pink, and gold rays from a white/yellow sun, and a patch of blue sky with white, gray, and pink clouds. I express the personalities of my pet and human subjects especially through their eyes as in the ink/acrylic mini-portraits of the dogs "Reilley and Madison" and the man in the oil "Essence of Ismael."
