If we don't tell these stories they will be lost. These paintings start with a line or a moments’ reflection, then grow from observations, inventions, and an inherent knowledge of this Midwestern life. The moments around us are important and beg to be observed as a carefully unfolding drama developing between human beings at close quarters. Life seems to be incidents in a continuous drama, and based on these relationships between humans and their immediate surroundings. The Midwest has its own particular characteristics that are marvelous when seen clearly. I love trying to make the interrelationship between the abstraction of colors, shapes, and rythyms of nature verses the humanity portrayed in this curious, wildly human world around us.
