My paintings are a series of paintings that tell a story which hopefully will tease the viewer to ask *WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?* I want the viewer to feel he is eavesdropping on a scene where everyone is having a good time.
I have a lighthearted attitude ( tongue- in- cheek so to speak) with these canvases.
I am shamelessly, irreverently poking gentle fun of stereotypes.
The scenes are pithy, sassy, quirky, yet playful.
I love to watch people looking at art. I can then paint them
with a winking disrespect.
I feel that everyone should have some whimsey hanging somewhere on their walls.
These paintings are a bit more challenging than my serious work.
In my painterly style, I have abandoned the cadmium and earth colors from my palette which is characteristic of my serious work. I mix and blend my tints and values prior to applying the paint to the canvas.
To follow your passion is liberating.
This is the best thing about being an artist.
