"BEFORE THE STORM"
36"H X 36"W

Enamel on Galvanized Steel

dear art afficianados
HOW ART THOU?

     "Before the Storm" is one in a series of abstract paintings on galvanized steel. I fell in love with the love of galvanized steel while riding in an elevator with galvanized steel walls, and knew I had to do something with this metal. So, I contacted a metal fabrication place and ordered a number of galvanized steel pans 36"H x 36"W with a four in lip all round. Then I began painting. This series is currently on exhibit at:

Talking Stick
1411 Lincoln
Venice, CA. 90291
310-450-6052
(Corner of California & Lincoln)

I hope you'll have a chance to stop by. In the meantime, here are the other venues I'm currently exhibiting my art in.

I create art because I must.
It is a necessary extension of my life.
It identifies and substantiates my existence.
It is my profile and my legacy.
I want to intrigue and entertain.
I want to initiate wonder and questions.
I want to communicate my thoughts, dreams and desires.
Most of all, I want to be
