this painting was made in multiple layers...the last was a cover up of the one below but areas were cut and carved away to reveal a bit of the layers below- even down to the original surface...these remains are expressed as exposed scars in the painting - analogous to those in a landscape or psyche

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.?
