For the Ride of Your Life:

"It may well be that there is no human urge more fundamental than that of making a mark"-

In the words of Chuck Close: "You Just Have to Show Up

"I would like to make something that is real in itself," [Arthur Dove] once wrote, "that does not remind anyone of any other thing, and that does not have to be explained like the letter A, for instance."

“Art is never an end in itself; it is only an instrument for tracing the lines of lives.”

—Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari (qtd. in West)

The Experience of the Ride!

What you see below is my way of focusing, by not focusing. I have decided that I am NOT a beginning, middle and end kind of artist. I am a beginning, beginning, middle,beginning, middle, post-middle, keep going, beginning, and eventually, end, end, end. kind of artist. (that was the long way around saying that I work things out better when I ALLOW myself to not fit into the linear structure of learning that society has us to believe we need to fit into.

This has allowed me the freedom to let what is going to happen, happen. It serves me well, and create the thrill of a ride I have not been on in quite a long time.
Buy a ticket...Hop on.. Try it. You will like it. ( all works are in progress)
