Painting is human beings' direct access to magic. The artist is granted the privilege of releasing his inner being with each stroke, while the viewer is granted access to a separate reality each time he looks upon the painter's work. Georgia O'Keefe called this "making your unknown known". I call it "embracing the unexpected". The purpose of art is to cause thought; as I approach a canvas I am ever mindful of the rare freedom and responsibility to share my unknown. #watercolor artist #western artist #oldwest artist

Join me in the Artist Support Pledge!
The concept is simple: any of my artwork seen here, on Facebook or Instagram that includes the logo to the left is available for $200 or less. Once I have sold $1000 I pledge to buy an artwork from another participating artist. This is a dynamic that will help myself and 100's of other artists during this difficult time.
