Ready to Hang

I currently live in an urban area - and my work/live space is on the 10th floor with a fantastic view of the city. It inspires me to create - the energy, tension, diversity, noise, etc are the ingredients. It's the perfect setting to infuse my style into the controlled chaos that is the city. There's a bit of a haunting, surreal aura here, amidst the color. This one is 36x36 and will make a great centerpiece for your home or office spacePainted with a palette knife the 1.5 inch sides are neutral gray - and no frame is necessary (unless you choose, of course). Ready to hang!

Welcome to my wacky and colorful world. I'm a self-taught Long Beach, California-based artist who's been a fan of art most of my life. I've developed much of my style by combining elements I've admired in paintings while visiting galleries across the country. You can say I was a "wandering minstrel" throughout the galleries of the U.S.. Color, texture, and psychological dimension are probably the three main components of my work. I'm most satisfied when someone connects emotionally to one of my paintings. I love that because it's really about suspending time and space while observing - that momentary escape we feel when relating to something on an intimate level that only we, as individuals, understand. While I do have intentions for some pieces, much of my work is open-ended so that the observer uses their own psychology to fill in the blanks. What's most fascinating to me is what people tell me they see in my paintings - stuff I never thought of! I'm a happily independent artist, won some awards, been in several art publications and galleries. However, the only thing I care about is you - and your art experience. Finally, music is another passion - I write songs and play guitar in "The 11th Floor Band."
