“I am a Fauve painter, a colorist and I tend to exaggerate.
My inspiration comes from the fauve paintings of Maurice de Vlaminck, Albert Marquet, Andre Derain and Henri Matisse.”
I make my paintings bright and happy. I don’t like straight lines. I like topsy turvy. In fact I don’t want anything straight or lined up and I don’t want my paintings to be
edgy and perfect. I am a painter and I want a painterly effect. ”May Mountain Meadow,” is an example of these rough edges. In my interior scape painting “The Porch, Sunday Morning,” I painted the door with window panes then repainted
the negative shapes inside the panes until I had an accidental rough spontaneous look that this Fauve requires. If you like fauve paintings check out the group I am in, the New Fauves.
