Paintings evolve through steps involving layers of paint separated by moments to months of contemplation of what the next step will be and how to achieve what you want.
A painter never retires and a painting never ends. They both just stop in interesting places. The beginning of a painting often has no resemblance whatsoever to the final achievement.
The most important job of the artist is to help the viewer find a deeper appreciation of the reality that surrounds them. The artist can be a guide who helps the viewer reflect on things they often barely notice. So much of what we experience in the world is translated visually, but our individual, internal experiences go far beyond our preconceived visual notions of reality.
Dimensions of all paintings are in inches. All are listed in the order of Height x Width x Depth (depth included only in canvases or artist wood panels with deep sides which are painted and varnished, needing no framing).
Paintings on paper are always matted which adds an additional 6" to the height and width. On this website the mats are not included in the dimensions. If they are framed and under glass, the frames can be removed and there will be a reduction in price.
If a price is not included w/ the image it is always available upone request (POR)
My painting galleries often include images that have sold. I include these images to give you an idea of my styles and subject matter. If any image is of special interest I would be willing to accept a personal commission to attempt something similar.
