The Blaze was painted for a Museum Lobby Art Show. I wanted something very simple for this show. All the same length.. Slim Vertical Pieces. So we have the "Elemental Series". Paintings that are fiery always attractive to me. Powerful. Bold. I've had many paintings in the past that were very large paintings of pure fire. Love it! This painting had to be part of the elements. My work does sell for $120 a square foot right now,. In a gallery these are selling for $360. So this size painting at this price may be an exclusive to "Vango".
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.
