Why are we wrapping ourselves in plastic?

Why are we wrapping ourselves in plastic?

So much of it ends up in the soil, oceans, and in our water.

Virtually all plastic is non-biodegradable.

So that means, THAT THE PLASTIC CONTAINER YOU ARE HOLDING WILL BE ON THIS EARTH FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS!

You read that right!

HUNDREDS OF YEARS!

Why are we wrapping ourselves in plastic?

New Painting “Three Boats”

I have been experimenting lately with recognizable forms. This recently completed painting is titled Three Boats. I find inspiration in the ocean and this piece developed because of my love of the water and watching boats in the harbor.

Nature calls to me. I tried to convey the openness of the mountains and the simple beauty of nature with this 60” x 60” painting.

Lifeguard Station

I finished this painting this week. It’s really graphic but I love how the simplicity of the form allows the viewer to get a sense of the atmosphere.

I have this slight obsession with lifeguard stations. Perhaps, it is because I grew up by the ocean or that I had my first awkward kiss on one. Regardless, I love watching how the light changes daily on these structures.
