From Camera to Brush – Making the Transition From Photographer to Contemporary Abstract Painter
About my artwork
The interesting thing is all my pieces work together and it's obvious they were created by the same artist.

My paintings are made up of a series of elements that play off of each other and support an overall interesting composition. Even though each paining makes a bold statement, they are still very fragile, if you remove one element they seem to fall apart. The style is different.

When I am approached to discuss my work, everyone agrees that it is unique and different, even those who hate it admit that it has a certain enticed charm. Some visitors to my studio will say," This is not the kind of work I like." they are more interested in representational art. However after they sit with a painting for a while then all of a sudden make comments like, "This would look great in my office or home." and they end up purchasing the piece...my paintings give off a great energy that people enjoy being around. They especially exude a personality throughout the day and evening as the light changes.
Artists I like
Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Josef Albers, Paul Klee, Jackson Pollock, Rothko, Kasimir Malevich.
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Arshile Gorky at MOCA in Los Angeles. Picasso at the Met.

How Not to Be Influenced in Your Creativity

I replied in what could have been interpreted as a smart A** reply. NADA. His eyes widened, "What do you mean you are not inspired?" So I explained, "I do everything humanly possible to not be influenced by what I see...and…

Dyslexia & Artists

You would be amazed at the who's who of dyslexics...Right off... let's name this one... not that he needs anymore attention... Picasso. Yes he and some other pretty well-known artists were lucky enough to be blessed with dyslexia. Just to name a few more in the world of art Ansel Adams, Da Vinci, Rauschenberg, Rodin and Pollock.

Because I happen to like Pollock's work and because I have always been fascinated by Lee Krasner's art I started reading Lee Krasner a biography by Gail…

Psychic Readers of Art...

Some artists, mostly "great" have the ability to see things beyond their normal senses. These mental forces or intuitions, with luck find their way into the brush. Everything about a painting has meaning.

Subject matter... "you name it, you can paint it...even if you don't really see it."

Composition... for…

Gershwin, Copland & Vivaldi Stimulating Your Art

It's hard for me to look at a steak and not think of Aaron Copland. After all the VO on the TV commercial says, "Beef...It's what's for dinner." With Hoe-Down from the Rodeo Suite blazing in the background (yes, I know this commercial is disturbing to my vegan & PETA friends).
