About "Nebulous Saint"
ya actually i saw a nebula on an old national geographic cover and if you looked closely you could literally see the eyes and nose and everything, as if it was looking over its shoulder at the hubble telescope, it was incredible, sadly however the face I could not paint so perfectly beautifully as it was soon in the foto, as if its drifting contemplative peace in deep hyperspace was disturbed by the hubble's intrusions... you have to look very close to the cover of that NG to actually notice the face... its very perfect, there is no doubt it seems to be a face once you see it.
I desire to paint the ordinary in an extraordinary light, and paint the extraordinary in an ordinary way, to show people amazing things that they would otherwise miss. From abstract to landscape, fundamentally there is an underlying message of value and aesthetics, beauty in simplicity - I attempt to convey messages, a fundamental mood, a place where one would want to reside in peace and calm, in the image presented, a momentary timelessness where the world is of no concern and the mind, and so the heart, can be at peace.
I haven't held exhibitions, as I have never nor ever will sell any paintings, they are all cherished members of my family, and are held as my own private collection. For friends I would give paintings, and do commissions. But if I paint something, I keep it. I don't ever intend on selling a single darned painting. Commissions, yes, sometimes... perhaps you could call me an Inhibitionist
