I'm an artist and writer of fiction and blogs, 70 years old, living in Portland, Oregon. Thrillingly married, two amazing sons and one amazing step-daughter, entering the world of artists 10 years ago. Long-time day-dreamer, and believer in hope and wonder. Magic too.
These past few months of painting feel like a new journey for me. I have certainly worked to create quality abstract paintings in the past, and you can see many of those in the "Abstract" page on this site. But most of those were painted a couple of years ago, and currently I am painting with more intention - fueled by a deep study of artists I most admire and who inspire me. Which brings me to the field of abstract art, specifically American abstract art, and particularly these days to Willem de Kooning and Joan Mitchell. I'll have more to say going forward, my intention to be far more regular in my appearance on this Blog. Thanks for checking in.
