These paintings, more than most, tell stories, or suggest stories, that the engaged viewer can r imagine from his or her own experiences. https://youtu.be/zrA-lk_5pUU
This group of paintings is the result of my long love of literature. Passages from Moby Dick by Herman Melville and The Great Gatsby by F.cCott Fitzgerald frequently echo through my memory and I am always happy when they make themselves manifest in my paintings. “The inessential houses began to melt…” from the glorious last page of Gatsby inspired the group of houses (inessential to all but me) that I have lived in and loved.
