In 2020, I may be returning to the desert with a muse and a different mindset.  

Late this past year, I had a visit from owners of a gallery who expressed an interest in my older, more primitive and representative work.  Work from the 2009 -2011 period which I kind of forgot about...or chose to forget...having decided to move forward with new styles or methods.  And I have mostly embraced a primitive abstract approach.  

But I have been revisiting the desert again, in my mind and in my heart, and some of the ideas about the desert that appealed to me.  And while the paintings will likely be different - and hopefully better - than from 10 years ago, they still will continue to touch on similar themes, with a little bit of an edge.  Perhaps it will be an evolution of style or thought on my part.  

Painting is exploration.
