This question came from Alan Sears.  This is interesting because Alan and I met while I was working for Genigraphics in New York & New Jersey where I was a top sales person selling computer graphic business presentations.  My main clients were pharmaceutical, telecommunications and household product companies.  In the late 80s and 90s I felt like I was out of my element being a sales person becuase my BFA degree was in Communication Design from Parsons School of Design.  I used my creative abilities to act not only as an account executive but an art director as well.  Being able to create on the spot with clients I believe made me a successful salesperson.  I continued this path joining AT&T Business as a account exective selling Internet related solutions.  AT&T is a great company becuase they invest in their employees to make sure they are well trained in sales techniques, negiotation tactics, and marketing.  After a number of years I joined the creative marketing team for AT&T Local...

Today I started what is to be my largest work to date.  It is 70" H x 118" W.   It is currently tacked up on my studio wall on which I need a step ladder to paint the top 1/3 of the canvas.  At times I need to step back to the other edge of the studio (20 feet back) to make sure the marks I am making are what I envision in my head when I am close to the canvas. I paint with action and intuitively. This will be the first layer of many in which I add and paint away various areas of the canvas.  I decided to try and limit myself to Black, White, & Red and the combinations that could happen when they are mixed.  These paintings are usually done over a period of months so I thought no better place to share this large painting than on my blog so I can occasionally update you on the progress of my art marking and my thoughts.

Like every other business person, Mondays are the start of a new week.  I am back in the studio after a restful Fourth of July weekend. Here are few shots of me working in my studio with the wonderful north light shining in.  I am working on a few commissioned "Billy Boot" paintings for some new patrons from North Carolina.  They asked for a North Carolina Boot with references to the lighthouses on the shore, and for a Texas Boot with references to the TX Lone Star Flag and the Space Shuttlle.  I painted the ground of the canvases with a bright orange with will help solidify the two paintings as a pair.  Starting Mondays off with work is a great way to get back in the groove and get my painting talents tuned up. I welcome visitors to my studio either when I am there working or by appointment.  I would like to thank my artist friend, Michael Perrucci for taking these photos with my iPhone of me working.
