"Allison and a Chicken" was inspired by a lovely young woman I know who gave up her modeling/acting career to move to a farm, raise children and chickens. I wanted to show not only her beauty but also her independent spirit. The painting is acrylic on canvas which has been attached to a treated birch wood panel. The surface is somewhat smooth but you can see the brushwork in the textures. The stark background is off white agaist a very light purple..not quite flat color, with variations of "shadow". The painting is framed in a minimal black resin frame approximately 1" in width. The actual artwork is 24" x 26" x 1" but the finished size is 26" x 28" x 2".

I was once traveling with a close friend, photographing everything in sight, as any tourist does. I asked him, "Don't you want to take any photos?" He answered, "I like to remember things in my own way." What a profound statement - and one that I take seriously when I paint. My art is about remembering things . . . in my own way . . . and "disremembering" everything else. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, my artistic career began at an early age when I began painting with my mother on Sunday afternoons. Surrounded by art books, paintings and sculpture at home, I always knew I wanted to be a painter.
