About The Artwork

During the 70s, I was heavily into clouds, sky, nature at whole, so I began to do cloud study paintings, this is one of those paintings. This one is titled "Cloud Front", and what follows is anyone's guess, it can be a soft warm drizzle, or a thunderous storm, either way nature has a way of leaving us guessing. Its blues are quite ravishing, brilliant and enveloping, as are the contrasts brought upon them by the lightness of the brighter colored clouds. During my time in the United States Navy, during World War 2, we saw many different types of storms come and go, as we made our way around the Pacific Ocean in our little Patrol Craft (PC-1080). When we saw showers in the distance, our captain would veer off course to catch the showers and bathe ourselves on the main deck. Clouds, not storms, are definitely a favorite subject of mine, since we can make anything out of clouds, I usually do exactly that, hide things in my cloud paintings. Not saying anything is hiding in this cloud painting, specifically, however, you might make something out one day. It a stiff piece, seeing as it is done on illustration board (cardboard as they call it at Saatchi), that's to say it will travel easily and can be effortlessly framed and placed.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
