Started imagining this painting while sitting in traffic during my commute to the day job. Even when you love what you do at work, getting there and back home can be a nightmare, with too much traffic. This commuter is singing a happy tune, but his view on Life is kind of small, in fact he is kind of disappearing into the background! Time for a vacation?
I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with a lot of freedom and outdoors to run around in. All my grandparents were immigrants so I grew up with an outsider's eyes. I'm interested in making art about life, not so much art about art. Moved to Austin for my BFA at UT -- so much talent there, colleagues pushing their media techniques and working out new processes to capture the best image. A really good environment for Artists but still developing as a place for collectors. Then we had a chance to move to northern Arizona in 2016, and here we are! Can't wait to see how this vast landscape influences Alo images.
