This is a painting about how it feels to have one's heart's desire just out of reach. It conveys the sense that just lurking under the surface of despair is a sense of luminescent hope. Can you relate?

This series, Emotion, addresses the temporal, personal, human struggle that includes loss, pain, joy, change, frustration, grief and aspiration. The paintings are intense, active and filled with a sense of energy in motion. For me as the artist, they the most self conscious and self absorbed of my recent work. They represent
energy that is unrealized in the sense of divine realization; raw and nascent. They represent the processing
of unconscious emotional reaction and converting it to consciousness, using the emotional energy to transform unrealized to realized, disturbance to peace. These paintings are powerful expressions of the unharnessed creative force that initiates change and growth, as are emotions when felt and constructively expressed.
