Villa Paradiso

Oil on canvas
30 x 37 inches

I feel I am a realistic painter, in that I want to paint things that are real.  Things seen and felt.  But to be a realist does not mean to me that every detail has to be rendered in a traditional realistic “one scene” per frame way.  Different things in a painting and a painting’s narrative need to be told in different ways.

Here I painted the nude with light spilling on her from the window…but I gave the light physicality with the paint and though I have the blinds from the window I hung them without the wall because the summer feeling of the moment is that your are in the actual sky with the sun dancing down on your skin.

Painting is a joy, and, of course, my day to day work, but has also been a refuge.
