This documents my work concentrating on the thoughts and images that are currently coming out of my studio.
Here is the latest painting.  This was derived from my inability to remember my childhood bedroom.  All I could remember was my love for dinosaurs and that my room had a dinosaur border.  Not even my mother, father or sister could remember the finite details, so I simply combined the memories that each of us had to come up with the colors and I used the toys that I collected as a child to create the border.  It is playful in nature, but visited in a sophisticated style of painting that reaffirms that I am an adult revisiting these objects.
