A Closer Look

My Country Tis Of Thee,  20"x13", presently on exhibit in the State House offices of Senator Eldridge

I've been told that my style of painting draws the viewer in to take a closer look.  
This is good.  I strive to share an idea ---a story, of sorts.  I believe art should make people feel something, one way or another ... grab your attention ... yank at your heart and mind  ... see possibilities ... provoke wonder ... amuse or calm.  It is my voice communicating through my hands.

 ---tell-tale signs of our checkered past.

 acrylic paint, vintage photos, board game images, maps, flag scrap ... all fuse nicely under the luster of buffed wax.
