I have been drawing and painting since I was a child. Since retiring from an altogether different life, I decided to dive into art more seriously than before; perhaps just sticking a toe in and wading at first.
I change my subject matter and medium fairly often because it seems like the thing to do at the time. I like to paint abstract and semi-abstract paintings using organic shapes found in nature. My other favorites are sea creatures and horses. I also have done many pet portraits.
With my abstracts, I paint so that I may stumble upon something new. Usually, I have little idea of what is going to happen. My main criteria for my painting is that it looks beautiful to me. Second is that it will cause other to pause, perhaps stop and look and find something new to them
