This painting is in the St George Parade of Homes.
The home is beautiful, built by JD Thompson.
Elegantly designed by Chris Evans, it was a pleasure to collaborate with
such talented and creative artisan's.

Last week I gave an art talk at Southern Utah University.
I talked about where my artwork began and where it is going.
While preparing for this talk I had the chance to look back at
myself and my work.
This is a self portraite I did in Canada in 1998.
I did this painting as I was struggling to find who I was as an artist.
Was I going to be an figuritive painter or would I alow myself to look
at the possibility of abstraction.
What a turning point that was for me, to look outside of what I knew and was comfortable with and explore.
What a great way to start 2008 by remembering where I started.
