I am an artist!

I know I’m an artist because when I make that proclamation out loud it doesn’t catch in my throat like it used to before I was an artist yet wanted to be one. I also get this big grin on my face when I make that brazen statement. The grin of gratitude and pleasure.

Painting for me is about human-ness, feeling the person making the marks and strokes. The slathery lusciousness of the paint.

That’s how my paintings come about, spontaneously intuitive. I want to be surprised. I don’t want to work towards some preconceived idea. I usually begin with an idea, subject or image and see where the magnificent process of painting grabs hold of me and takes me to some unknown place, some place I couldn’t have thought of.

I LOVE TO PAINT! And I do my best to help viewers of my work leave the work with the awareness that “this guy loves to paint.
