I've drawn and painted for many decades, and it's a mostly happy, but sometimes cathartic, process for me.
From small pen and ink illustrations/cartoon-art with watercolor accents on paper, to acrylic and ink on canvas or board.
I capture and stylize a still life or an abstract mostly from my mind's eye and memories.
My paintings usually incorporate large blocks of color with a simple object celebrated fondly with ink and acrylic paint. Objects of simple analog or ordinary electric things from not long ago. Sometimes a pencil or screwdriver, and often toast or a toaster, and even lemons with a twist.
Engaging the viewer, inviting them to look at everyday objects with a sense of humor, seeing the familiar with new eyes.
I feel those reliable everyday objects bring a comfort and fond memory that I want to commemorate in my work.
