Art is a part of my life that cannot be suppressed. It occupies my mind almost every day. My thoughts and personal experiences blend to generate different levels of enthusiasm. As a result, my work is exciting for me. When I create a work of art, I visualize images that make me think of the past and moments I've experienced throughout my life. These concepts come from observing life and what is familiar to me. Actually, ideas often develop from daydreaming! You would be surprised of how many sources in which an artist taps into.
BOBBER Original Vignette Size: 33" x 21" Colored Pencil on Foamcore Bobber was an idea that came to me on day while standing on my dock at our lake property. For my whole life, it was always common for us to walk down to the lake and drop all of our fishing gear into a big a pile on the shoreline or the dock while preparing to head out and fish for the day. In this particular image, a Springer spots the bobber and is immediately entranced. Better get over there before he finds the hook!
