    This is the 2nd painting in my series titled “I DO Know Jack!”. This series was first conceived over 30 years ago while I was working a “regular” job and raising a family. For whatever reason that explains how an artist thinks, I visualized a toy jack on a wheel of cheese…as in “pepper jack cheese”. Over those years I wrote down my ideas and made sketches and studies for the time when I could leave the work world and pursue my dream of creating art for a living. The recognition that this painting has received gave me the confidence to continue this quest.

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
