Ready to Hang

The reason I chose the title for this piece because I have always found Buddhist temples a place of peace, quiet, and somewhere to be able to collect your thoughts.

I created this piece during an early period of being a Buddhist.

My inspiration in creating this piece was a visit from my Buddhist Teacher from Japan. We had talked about Japan after one of our meditation practices and I was missing Japan.

I have been to Japan on numerous occasions and while creating this piece I had not been back in several years. I was missing Japan and this helped me wander to some of the places there I had visited and brought some found thoughts of my teacher.

Growing up I learned to appreciate art at an early age. I first learned how to draw and understand lines, shadowing and blending. Then progressed to painting with oils. Learning from artists like Beaupre, Ginzburg, and Christenson. I have a background of martial arts, Buddhism, a love for the East, wildlife and Jazz music. So all of this naturally reflects in a lot of my work. My work takes you on a journey in search of your inner self. Now retired from Law Enforcement, I have decided to dedicate my time to my passion for painting. And sharing that passion with you. I live in upstate New York with my wife Kate and our three sons.
