Rocks

                                   Rocks Listening to Thunder
                                     Rocks Reflecting Lightning

Two of my latest paintings, both have already sold, which is a bit overwhelming since
I am usually attached to work until I have moved on to newer pieces.  Still it is great to have people purchasing the work, it seems to instill a dynamic energy into the whole painting process.  Having viewers who respond with genuine emotion and then wanting to live with the painting is a moving experience for me and one I would miss out on if I was working through a gallery.  I feel the painting is incomplete until a viewer completes the cycle and resonates with something he/she feels or sees.  This
recognition is often on the nonverbal level but leaves one with a sense that something meaningful has transpired between the artist and the viewer.
