...I enjoy painting in what I call ,"Pseudo naive cartoon Abstractism", featuring bright colours in very simplistic forms.A happy feeling exudes from my works as they are all based on features from the present and past.Usually a car or bicycle shows up somewhere in the picture. I work only in acrylics with black pencil art markers. I took a 1 year fine arts university course back in 1964, and then dropped it completely until only recently.My works have gone in 2 directions:the landmark paintings, and the everyday situations featuring "little people". People tell me they can "connect" with my historical view of the passing scene. Signs and commercial store fronts are a key to my paintings.Take close look at the signs...often a little bit of humor, pathos, or sarcasm creeps in.I try to take a casual look at art, not a regimented "text book" style. Colours are blended to suit my mood; the brush is seldom cleaned between colour changes to result in gradual colour transitions. Taking a blank form and letting a pencil take its course is always a surprise. Remember, we paint and create for ourself first; the world comes later !
