Hello from the Artists' Corner. I love to paint and carve, it is what I strive to spend my days in creative meditation, lost in blissful timelessness. My art ranges in an eclectic variance of styles and media. My drawing and painting styles extend from realism to impressionistic to abtract, psychedelic and surreal, the latter of which I use intense color combinations that vibrate your eyes and swirl your brain. My realism spans works in portraiture, and figurative anatomy, and equestrian art and landscapes, and illustration (book, fashion, sports).I have painted large murals, three of which no longer exist, at least the buildings have been demolished for new construction. I sculpt mostly in wood, but I have worked in stone and metal. Lately I have been carving totem poles that are about 10 to 15 feet in height, I hope to start working on much larger logs soon. I also like to discuss philosophy and religion and topical subjects with friends. I love to read; a diverse variety of subject matter.
