A quick sketch based on an image burned in my brain predawn today. It's ok to play I say. Formula may please the mind, and representation might pay the rent, appreciating paint for what it is is what soothes my soul when all is said. Done.
I am an oil painter. I paint mostly from direct observation both indoors and out. I studied at the Art Students League Manhattan under Daniel Dickerson. In my work I strive to maintain a balance between abstraction and representation all the while keeping atmosphere most important. View my show schedule to see where I'll be exhibiting.
