An interview for the Newington-Cropsey Cultural Studies Center. I may have been a little excited about Wyeth and the necessity of making a mess.

My just published interview on Savvy Painter was, as I mention in the second portion, something of an epiphany. She asked a question I've been asked before, about the role of art in this life as parent of a child with some complicated medical needs, but in this setting it caused me to stop and, eventually, reconsider.

The roster of artists she's spoken with is impressive and I am an honored to...

I saw generations of hands turning a now missing knob and centuries of families and friends passing over its threshold at the rear of the house. And how it sat today as the sharp cut of light and shadow across its etched face highlighted both its resilience and the toll of so many days.

It’s rare that I’m excited about a new year. Each ticking day, after all, is a step towards the finish line and I have yet to build that time machine that will let me fix the mistakes of yesterday and the mistakes I’m making right now (grammar among being them). But this year I am fired up by this annual winter baptism. It’s a new year that holds great promise. I may have said this all...

There’s a list in my head at any given moment of the pieces I’d like to finish, the pieces I’d like to start, and, when I dare whisper it to myself, the pieces I wish I was making. As I was sorting through the usual mix of work - some motorcycles, a commissioned landscape, planning out the whale painting (yes, whale!), some pieces to send to a new gallery, etc - there was one other...
