Descriptive as all heck. I love the ocean, I love the sea, I love lakes and rivers and ponds. I grew up surfing in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I've owned tons of boats in multiple states. Even living here in Colorado we own a boat and get out on the lakes often. Ship at sea is my impression of an old tattered ship with a storm bearing squall. I love the sea, yet have an equal amount of respect and fear for the peaceful violent creature in all it's untamed glory.

I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
