I think of my paintings as illustrations of little pieces of my life and experience. Because I grew up on and in the water and have been a lifelong sailor, my subject is often nautical or water-related. Lately though, I have found myself working on different subjects. I am producing a series of paintings from a long road trip through the South and West, and it is hard to find a lot of waterfront in Arizona. I am painting kids, baseball and airports and my style is evolving, becoming less illustrational and more simplistic with a bolder use of color. It’s also improving, I hope. Philosophically, I can only hope that my art pleases your eye, stimulates your mind and heart, and shows you our world through my eyes. Please enjoy it!
