Alone Again

 Sometimes you feel alone because you are, and sometimes you feel alone with someone right there next to you.



Don't just stand there, let's get to it. Strike a pose, there's nothing to it. Vogue!

This was inspired by fashion illustrations. I'm not in to "fashion" much at all. Kinda just wear what I want to wear and don't follow trends. For the most part I think there have been very few attractive advancements to fashion since the early 60s. That being said, I really enjoy fashion illustrations - yes, even the modern stuff! They're so heavily stylized and often bear little resemblance to the finished product, but I think they're probably a truer representation of what the designer really wants to create.

I love fall. I love hats. I love tweed. I even love the word "tweed". It sounds silly and childish but the fabric itself is rather sophisticated. Tweeeeeeed...

Mixing Bowl

 "Mixing Bowl" Digging through the archives, I came across this oldie. This was inspired by a painted tile made a decade ago by a friend. So serene in her kitchen duties - a feeling I certainly can't relate to!

Sunset On The Lake


 "Sunset On The Lake" Good things come from oddly sized canvases found in basements...



 "Repose" This is actually a series of three framed mirrors which can be hung as a group or individually. I had these mirrors for months before actually finding the inspiration to work with them. (A common occurrence with my collection of found objects - or "flat surfaces" as I call them.) One day I just looked at them and thought to do primitive paintings of body positions wrapping around the square shapes. They're a bit different from my "typical" figural style but they've had a very positive response. Most people see them as people doing yoga, which was not at all my intention. Now that I think about it, they do rather look like a trio of yogis!
