Artist Statement:

With this work I wanted something different from previous series of mine. Instead of using a single organizing theme, I approached these paintings in a manner similar to a luncheon date with a close friend. During this fanciful conversation, any topic of interest would be open for discussion. Thus the subject matter is associative, moving from object to idea to memory to landscape and back again.

Each work is given equal weight. They are modest in scale (4 x 6 inches to 9 x 12 inches) and materials (model train enamel). It is in the everyday realities that I find a beauty not hidden but simply unrecognized.
