Last summer I was with my family at a park here in Houston and my son decided to start collecting pine cones and sticks. All I had was a grocery sack to store them in but he was more than happy to proudly carry it around collecting his treasures. I love how little kids are fasinated by the beauty of everything. It is something worth aspiring to. Afterall don't we all long to see past the flat screens of our world and truely see beauty? The true kind. The kind that is in 3 demensions. How powerful and life changing would it be to take time to really look at something right there in front of you in your ordinary life and realize it is just simply beautiful. And then from there taking someone else's hand and helping them see the beauty too. That's what my son and I do on our best days together. That is the true heart of every artist and every person that truely loves. And I guess that is why I make art. I love to capture these memories of seeing beauty.

Detail of the painting.
"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
