Element Mahogany

Mahogany in is cut, joined and stained.

TODAY MARKS 14 YEARS SINCE I WALKED AWAY FROM A CAREER IN INTERIOR DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE AND INTO A CAREER AS A FULL-TIME ARTIST. IN 2001, “SOUTHWEST ART MAGAZINE” REFERRED TO IT AS A “LEAP OF FAITH”.  REFLECTING BACK OVER THE PAST 14 YEARS, THAT IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT.  EVERYDAY IS A NEW LEAP OF FAITH, AS I WORK TO CONVEY TO MY AUDIENCE AND ONTO THE CANVAS WHAT TOUCHES ME AND WHAT I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT. PAINTING IS ABOUT DEVELOPING A SKILL, BUT IT IS ALSO ABOUT PUTTING A BIT OF THE ARTIST SOUL ONTO THE CANVAS AND HOPING THAT SOMEONE CONNECTS WITH IT.  NOT TOO LONG AFTER WALKING AWAY FROM MY DAY JOB, I BEGAN SHOWING THE MCLARRY FINE ART GALLERY.  RECENTLY, THESE FOUR PAINTINGS SOLD AT THE GALLERY.  A NICE WAY TO COMMEMORATE THE 14 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.
