I revel in the feeling that washes over me when I look up into the night sky and see the stars in the infinity of space. I get the same feeling when I am sitting on a beach and watching the waves dance with the wind, or in the mountains watching eagles fly through the trees: an infinity of possibility. A Surrendering. I feel like that is art at its core. When I paint, I try to surrender and let the paint do what it wants to do while guiding it where I feel it should go. My current focuses are on Acrylic, Colored Pencil, and the ever chaotic Watercolors. They are like painting with an undercurrent; you can’t control it, you just have to ride along with it. This makes every painting I do with them an adventure.
My intention is that my artwork evokes an emotional response from the viewer. One that reminds them of some fond memory of a vacation they took, or the sense of wonder they felt the first time they picked up a comic book and saw a superhero that they identified with, their first Dungeon and Dragon’s campaign, or a re-connection with a sense of nostalgia.
I try to blend traditional techniques, modern pop culture themes, and new experiments into a composition that will evoke the same sense of wonder and endless possibility that I experience when I look into the night sky.
