My fine art work is inspired by personal experiences. Through the years I have painted in many different styles with varying subject matter. The past five years I have been painting purely from imagination or memory. Mostly I am trying to paint what I feel. I like to use symbolism in my work, in the objects I depict, in the posture and expression of the figures, and in the colors, and shapes I use.
|These pictures were done around the time I became a father and my wife a mother. I think they have to do with feelings of lost self-identity and the inner strength it takes to keep going after such a change in life. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps now.
