Ready to Hang

This abstract expressionist painting reflects a quiet calmness of a women lost in thought. I see her as a dancer or maybe a "woman of the night" who questioning the direction of her life. It may mean something different to you...The vague details in the painting allow you to embrace its psychological dimension, allowing your own personality and thought processes to finish the story. The paint is thick - this was created using a palette knife. No need to frame since it has 1.5 inch sides that are painted a matte black.

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."
