A Western Look

These paintings express my feelings about the west. From what I see, to what I have experienced and what I grew up with as a western TV show or movie. The expression is probably subconscious thoughts that are going on in my present life. There is always something going on in our personal life. Now more than ever, turbulent cultures here in the USA do to COVID and politics.

You may see in these paintings that they have a rough fluid look. You would be correct. It is what makes painting truly fun for me. Painting by site versus some formula or intellectual measure. With the swipe of a brush, I can change a shape by adding to it, or over-paint to subtract from a shape. On a flat panel, it makes sense and becomes believable.

Moving things around fluidly can set up a dramatic composition that would never have happened in reality. Has a painterly aspect that cannot be achieved any other way but by painting and re-painting areas till they represent what you want to achieve.

Not everything happens in our brain from cognitive thought. Much happens on the canvas responding freely, like an infant first experience of what it grasps.

They are available as same size prints for my collectors. Same size at $1400/print selection.
