Yield to the Adventure
This painting is part of my "Endless Blues" series, which expresses the feelings I have since 2001 on both a personal and global level. During this period I spent a lot of time in my studio painting and listening to my favorite blues music. Endless Blues is an apt description of how I felt after September 11 and the ensuing battle in Afghanistan. On a personal basis, I struggled with lung cancer and its associated treatments. The emotional and physical sense of uncertainty made me take refuge in my studio. The result is that painting and listening to the blues was the best therapy. Like the blues, my paintings are always strong, sometimes sad, a bit nostalgic and very colorful.
