I just love the pageantry and style of ballroom dancing. The women and their costumes are so beautiful. I have never seen it live, all I know is the competitions on television. I want to see a live competition, and would love to photograph the couples. This is on my to do list......

crystal blue 18 x 24 inches acrylic on canvas 2005
This painting is from 2005. I was really into abstract expressionism. I am once again returning to non objective subjects. What I really enjoy is the invention of pure abstraction. I love the intellectual ephemeral quality of abstract paintings. The older I get, the more that I respect and admire the artists who do abstract work.

Reclining Nude oil on canvas 1984 24 x38 inches
This is an very old painting that I did in 1984. As you can see, even way back then, I was developing my style with the dark outline. I remember painting this in my bedroom.....in Houston Texas fresh out of college. I have no idea where this painting is today.

This abstract woman dates from 2006. She is an acrylic on canvas and is 20 x 32 inches. I don't really know why, but this style of drawing and painting seems to keep reoccurring in my work . To me, it is very natural. I just shut my mind and listen to the inner voice and let go. I think this has similarities to some of the early primitive cultures and how they created art.....Or I could just be koo koo for koko puffs.

babapoosha 24 x 38 inches acrylic on canvas 2007
A painting from 2007 that I titled with a nonsense name, a made up word. The reason that I made up a word, was that I wanted the viewer to have no visual connection to anything except the experience of the piece of art. I enjoy the idea of abstract art that exists only because the artist imagined it without any outside reference. The painting then becomes a object that exists for itself. It truly is what it is.....

In front of the Mondrian 24 x 36 inches acrylic on canvas
A painting from 2004 of a girl standing in front of a print by the Bauhaus Artist Piet Mondrian. There is nothing better than a beautiful woman, and beautiful art together at the same time. I saw this lady at a party standing in front of this painting, and I knew this was a work of art. I came home and immediately began to paint this picture.
