New magazine articles and videos

Dear Subscriber:

The first snow arrived overnight here in northwestern Pennsylvania, and I am already looking forward to the optimism I harbor as the days begin to get incrementally longer starting December 21st. (Is that being optimistic about being optimistic?) Never mind that daylight is getting shorter until then and won’t be as long as today until February. Hope does seem necessary when looking at calendars, but it is hardly needed when immersed in nature – or art – where everything just is. I think that’s why it’s called a painting, not a painted. When you really see it, it is always a current event. T

magazine articles

But I digress. Here’s the update I promised. Articles on my work were published in the current editions of American Art Collector (Nov 2021) and International Artist (Oct/Nov 2021) magazines. You can read the articles linked to images below.

I would like to clarify one thing in the American Art Collector magazine article for people who know me and would think one of the quotes strangely unlike me. Before I said trees are "foreign to us. We may as well be living on a different planet," I first said that trees and humans co-evolved together, and that all lifeforms are our shipmates on this journey, but we are in other ways such different sorts of beings. And hence, the "different planet" comment, about perception.


Groveland Gallery put together a short video wherein I answer some questions about my paintings in the solo exhibition there, which runs through Novemberf 27. LINK


Let me know if you have any of your own comments or questions.
