Interests and Personality

BiographyI am influenced both by an intense immersion in nature and a close involvement in the process of people's lives. Patterns fascinate me, in growing things and in our lives, the way we address similar issues over and over, but differently as events unfold; The way I see it in the continual cycle of living things, and in the way for us humans it is a reason to live and yet is such a challenge. I infuse these fascinations into my abstract oil paintings as I build/subtract layer upon layer, and pattern over pattern.

Susie, one of the friends listed at your site, is ill. A get well letter would do her heart good and cheer her up a bit. We live in a world that does not apriciate art. We must care for eachother. So leave a post on her board if you have time. Put a smile on her face when she gets home from the hospital. L John TOX

nice work I like the use of earthy tones. They bring your peices together. Your work would be great for an interior designer.
