Pardon Me Are You Bi-Polar?
acrylic on organic cotton canvas
38" x 38"

One of the questions I get most often asked about my art work is: "What does it mean?" Usually I will give an answer but as time goes by the original meaning becomes less clear and a new meaning can be imposed on a painting. Generally I am uncomfortable in "explaining" a piece of art in that it takes a bit away from the viewer-painting relationship. My experiences are not like anyone else's and even well explained will lose a bit in the translation.

This current painting I will omit any discussion of meaning and stay focussed on how it was painted.

For those person(s) in the painting you know who you are and you know what this means.

Peace Always
