There is a way of seeing ordinary everyday objects that reveals something glorious about existence. While I often paint obviously wonderful subjects like a mountain stream or a beautiful woman; sometimes I am struck by the profound simple perfection of a cup of coffee, or the happiness stored in a rubber duck.


Painting allows me to give these things the careful attention they deserve. The challenge is to capture all this in a compelling abstract composition and execute it in gobs of unrestrained color. Done well the painting becomes a kind of preserved prayer; a record of the revelations contained in the mundane.
