Most of the subject matter in my paintings and oil pastel work pertain to, fantasy, sexuality, identity, and dream. I have always been driven by a strange sense of humor. Cats, dogs and other creatures in the wild kingdom are presented with my own interpretation. Many of these reflect pets both past and present. The smell of linseed oil and art materials are inspiring.. One of the first things I painted was a "mottled" eight by ten-foot background that I still use to shoot photo portraits against. I buy canvas in bulk, stretch and prime everything and even make my own custom wooden frames in my woodshop. Painting is my bastion of creativity. All of my work is available for purchase.
