"Ricky" is from an on-going series of narrative, figurative portraits entitled "Second Wind." My goal is to challenge stereotypical views of aging by focusing on the vitality and creativity of individuals who have found a new vocation; their active and passionate engagement with creative pursuits developed after the age of sixty-five.

Ricky, a retired police officer and semi-professional wrestler now serves as a medical intuitive, utilizing ancient wisdom from his Wompanoag culture.

This series aims to exemplify the grace and wisdom of those who possess a wealth of knowledge that can only be obtained through a lifetime of experience. And from a painting standpoint, I aspire to preserve the alchemy of light as it transforms the familiar to the extraordinary.
