Layers of sound displayed in visual form...notes of color with moments of silence in between...those moments of silence that have quieted the constant noise that previously existed. The silence and space between the notes are larger in volume than the notes and play a subtle yet very important role in giving significance to the notes that remain. Instrumental Dissolve.

From my personal collection that I've owned for several years. Medium is Oil and Acrylic on Plywood. Note - some say acrylic over oil is not recommended but in this case the acrylic was applied years after the oil was applied to allow proper curing of the oil to take place. I have personally hung and enjoyed this piece for several years with no issues or change to the surface since the paint was applied.

Hi - brief background....I am a 15 year resident of Jackson Hole, Wyoming although I'm from Nashville TN originally and also lived in Knoxville and Krakow, Poland for a bit. Although my primary career has been as a licensed architect here in Jackson, I have continued to produce and sell art for the past 16 years. My method of producing art has been on expressing what is within and what I feel needs to be from the canvas, rather than imitating what I see. It's an exploration with few if any preconceived notions and develops in a very non-linear way. People often ask me ..."what IS it?"...and often followed by, "it looks LIKE..." as if it needs to be some recognizable form or look LIKE anything. Why does a painting need to look LIKE anything at all? Do people ask musicians what their music sounds LIKE, as if it needs to have some recognizable characteristic, as if music must sound like the ocean, or the wilderness, etc.?
