Artist’s Statement

Daily life relies on intuition, conflict, courage, mistakes, surprises,

a letting go of beauty, a surrender to chaos, silence, solitude.

Failures inform more than success.

There needs an edge, energy, empathy, attitude, delinquency, doubt, passion, mystery, and grace.

An old-school artist on all four sides, healthy, vulnerable, centered, I persist.

Each day afresh.

My voice, yes?

Workshop with Robert Stark will be on Sunday June 2nd at 10:00am-1:00 pm at the Rochester Art Club in the Hungerford Building, fourth floor, Studio #458.

Participants are encouraged to bring their painting supplies and join in.
