Artist Statement

Sixty-three years have gone by since I first picked up a paint brush. I can't imagine not painting and now that old age is upon me,painting is what keeps me sane(if I am)and happy.
My goal in art is to combine abstract design with realistic details in a manner compatible with both. My influences include Hieronymus Bosch,Rene Magritte,Attilio Salemme,Pablo Picasso and Stuart Davis. My work incorperates everyday moments,naked people,created textures,vivid color and eccentric forms,all presented with a love of the grotesque and absurd.
