Selfie

There is the age old tradition of the painter doing self portraiture. How a painter sees themselves often gives insight into how they view their work. I go for a sort of truth that allows the organics of it to facilitate emotion.

The size of my works is keeping in mind people for whom space is at a premium. Collecting art should never have to be a thing for only those with “X” amount of square footage. I also think of burgeoning collectors whose aesthetics and eyes are just developing. I want them to live with my works not under it. I desire too that the direction their collection goes in is not dictated by a first piece dominating a room/area.

The smaller size also helps further garner the feeling of the viewer sort of ease-dropping into a scene.
