My main problem as an artist is that I am easily distracted and excitable by new kinds of projects. Rather than try to avoid these impulses, I've made it my philosophy to embrace them, and see where they take me. One of my latest obsessions has been painting digitally. My career roots are in oil painting, and I gave it up due to fumes and constraints on studio space. It's nice to revisit the same concepts but on the computer. I see it as a step away from traditional gallery art which feels less and less relevant to me every day and into the print/web publishing art space. I still love original art objects, but I love other things too.
Anyway, here are a couple of examples. I still feel like I'm in my baby steps, but there you are.
