Short Stories
Oil on Canvas
48" x 60"

Our lives seem to be a steady series of short stories. There's a beginning, middle, and end to dropping a spoon or traveling to the water. Every life is packed with these stories and painting is one way I've found to stop a story and think about what happened before and after the scene which is unfolding on the canvas. This painting has lots of stories in it which I hope you will imagine and maybe share in your own way.
