Even the most mundane subject can be instilled with a quiet beauty. This particular piece was created merely to understand the values inside a room...that is why I allowed a part of the outside to be a relationship of these close values.
This was painted years ago, when a friend of mine, Lynn Gertenbach, and I traveled to see Ovanis at his new studio in southern Idaho. This was not a "set up", merely something "just setting around."

Keeping with the spirit of things,
and recognizing the specialness of the "common"...

Also, I never list another artist's web site, but I am making an exception!


should be the basis of painting from your soul
(which has always been my philosophy,
more important than any sales, or any approval!)
...and to understand this, a friend of mine, Tom Clements,
has shared a great deal from his "soul"...
