I am a self-taught artist with some fine art training. I trust my instincts when it comes to most things and even more when it comes to Art. I use a capital "A" because creating beautiful images on canvas is my reason for “being”. These paintings are like my children. They will live longer than any sons or daughters that I might have had.
Despite the somber introduction above, the subject of this and most series are about fun times and friendships. Who doesn’t need a bit of good news these days? My colors are bright. The story is uncomplicated. Let us enjoy looking a lady enjoying a good meal, friends having a genuine laugh, and a movie with Halloween ghouls.
I lived in New Orleans for many years and it has flavored my outlook, so Laissez les bons temps rouler, let the good times roll. Carnival is coming. Enjoy the paintings and the show.
