abstract painting of weather patternsWeather Patterns: 1950

"The mind is the realm of art. It is where every person experiences the fantastic, the beautiful, the terrible, and the divine. My goal is to forget the widely accepted reality, the so called mundane. I turn my focus towards the fantastic. Not necessarily the ideal, but the surreal, the mystical, the super-natural.

"I have been drawing since I can remember; the only one in my family to do so.  Since the age of seven I have been aware of the mystical happenings in life.
