My figurative work comes from the well of art history and human history, it’s high points and foibles, mixed with a large dash of humor. Bosch and Goya are touchstones, as are a number of contemporary artists. Mine is a slightly oblique look at our work.
The landscapes result from my time off for good behavior from my studio in the American Burial Casket Co. building in Oakland. They are images from the western United States, Mexico, and Europe.
