Kitty Reading

002 A Kitty Reading 60X40.jpg

Kitty and I married in 1999. I painted her reading a book. After a couple of years, I put the painting into storage. Four years ago I took it out of storage and finished the painting. I am often asked how long. My answer is as long as it needs to finish.

Forest of Totems is composed of cast bronze “stones.” I’ve been a stone-stacker all my life. The Oregon coast is pure inspiration for a stone-stacker.

We were taking the street car up to the castle at the top of the hill. Stopped for this view, did a quick sketch, and got back on the street car.

 

Life Force

I lived out in the desert in Santa Fe, NM when I made this piece. Out there, water is life (you can’t live without it), so I named this piece Life Force.
