About The Artwork

Clouds are a favorite subject of mine to paint, draw, sketch and open my imagination with, seeing as we can make anything out of clouds. However, sometimes clouds can be quite beautiful and calming, as well as menacing at times. Through it all, we can be certain of one thing, clouds make life possible in places where it would otherwise not be able to exist. And in that single fact, I find I'm completely fascinated with clouds of all shapes, sizes, forms, colors and features. And now, you can own one my cloud artworks, in this piece I call "Lightning in the Clouds". Its a bit of a heavy piece, seeing as I did it on Masonite. Back in the day, I used to love working on Masonite, however, when I had to move, it became harder and harder to do so, since Masonite is pretty heavy. So, that alone caused me to stopped doing art on it, however, it does show really well.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2023, at 99 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, in relative comfort in my own home, 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.
