Recent Paintings

I attempt to paint small, quick paintings several days a week. Often these paintings are an exploration of the ordinary objects in my ordinary life.

One of the great painters of the western world, Claude Monet, also elevated the ordinary. He explained, "Try to forget what objects you have before you - a tree, a house, a field, or whatever. Merely think, 'Here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow,' and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives you your own impression of the scene before you."


That is what I seek to accomplish.
