Oil and Acrylic Painting on Wood
My current series is meant to communicate my appreciation of life with the viewer. It is an extension of myself, an unfolding of my experiences, and an opportunity to share my enjoyment of life with others. Conversations with my wife and friends show up in my work, along with nostalgic American iconography, and contemporary imagery often painted from photographs I’ve taken along the way.
My current focus is trompe l’oeil “trick-the-eye” super-realism, as seen in the oil and acrylic illusion of a Polaroid of my dog, Daisy, taped to a chalkboard in “Coming Home” and paper bone, tape, and Daisy in “Now Please.” These paintings have sparked debates between those who maintain that the Polaroid, paper, tape, and chalk writing was real and those who discovered it was only paint.
