     Since I was little I remember my sister and brother drawing all the time. And they were good...later in life they both graduated art school. My sister become a clothing designer, my brother a tattoo artist.




I tried to be like them, but never was able to draw more than a stick and circle so I gave up.

     About two years ago I picked up a brush and started to paint...for the first time in my life I enjoyed the process. I did not feel that I had to prove anything to anyone; I just simply poured a glass of wine, put a vinyl record on and started to paint...



     I paint random things. In the beginning I rarely planned the outcome of the painting. I simply picked up a brush and played with paint and colors...



     Today I feel that I gained more confidence and learned more techniques so I start to plan what I am going to paint. I still don't consider myself a good artist but I enjoy painting and do it mostly for my own inner good...



   Here is my attempt to paint the air plane battle...


      I also collect random trash along the road everywhere I travel. Bring them home and store it in the glass jars until the rainy season sets in and coops me in the house. Then I make some displays out of these treasures...


     This display was made of the random trash I collected along route 66 on my trip to Utah a couple of years ago. Every time I stopped to enjoy the scenery, take a photo I looked around and always found something... The old newspaper that I used for the contrast, I found in one of the abandoned gold mines near my home town Merced...


 In the mornings while drinking my coffee I sketch some ideas for the new paintings...


...and sometimes they come true...Just like this PUTINIUM sign. We were sipping coffee one morning talking about things, Beth was reading an article about several new chemical elements that got named recently. One of them had something to do with Russian scientist so I made a joke that they should have named the element after their current president Vladimir Putin... something like PUTINIUM. I sketched the symbol and next weekend painted on the canvas...


 ...another painting of "City Lights" I did some time ago...
