About The Artwork

"In my many travels I have been in a number of caves, both underground and above. There was one, in particular, when I went down the Colorado River in a boat, we walked into this cave it was carved by the wind and the water. So, I decided I would paint it, after a few years of memories. And this is what I came up with, it’s called the ‘Wind Cave’. It's 20 x 30 inches, and I finished it in 1997. It’s an accumulation of memories of my adventures. There’s so many surprising things that nature carves and creates, it’s just… I did this one in acrylics, it’s on foam board. I don’t do that very often, but I had a piece of board handy and that’s what happened." Excerpt from the video essay by Vernon Finney for "Wind Cave": As is with some of the original art I have left in my private collection, this one was victim to at least one flood in its life, and as such you can see some disfigurement on the right side of the painting. Overall, the painting looks great, and the blemish can only be seen in the right light, however, I believe in full disclosure. Also, that's why the price is so low, considering it is dear to me, as is all other children of mine (my artworks).

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.
