As I have gotten older I need more break time from sitting in the studio and painting. So I find myself taking breaks and watching TV. As I have always watched a lot of TV, at times I would feel at the same time both guilty and engaged while watching. Guilty because there is the criticism in our culture of it being a waste of our time – yet engaging, especially now with the advent of hi-def flat screen technology and because of the visual, illuminated panoply of images that are constantly at our fingertips.  So as I vegetate off to the left of my Flatscreen HD TV I started taking photos, with my phone, of images that appealed to me. Using the initial photo I then alter and add to the original images for the paintings. My intention for these was to go a little lighter than what I did for my last solo show “Fear and Anger” in 2017. But as things have not changed much since then from both a political and now a public health perspective, these new works still seem to express the dark and ominous circumstances in which we find ourselves.
