Lines are good. As an artist they are essential and I have deep respect for them. They serve as boundries,divisions of spaces, keepers of form and enticements to the other side. They draw us, repel us, move us to awe or tears and give meaning to a laugh. We all relate to the same line in a different way. Some experiance safety and some think Hummmmm...How exciting, how dangerous, let's cross!
It is evident that I have dared to set my tires at times just over the edge. Oh dear...In doing so I'm afraid I have exposed the oft confessed rebel in me. Wild emotions set down in paint next to a deep longing for a still quiet Voice. I have both screamed and prayed in oil.
I am a Wisconsin oil painter, pastel artist and fine art photographer. I am a member of the League of Milwaukee Artists and the founder of the Wisconsin Plein Air Painters Association (WIPAPA). I am also a member of the Oil Painters of America. As a painter I have for years taken photographs with color and composition in mind. I hope you like them! Many of my original oils and pastels are done 'plein Air' or in the open air.
If you know a work I have done and don't see it here please e-mail me and I will down load it for you!!
