Living on the coast from San Diego to Eureka I am a Californian native. It's a long state. There is a lot of change from top to bottom. It is beautiful and horrid. The beauty of the of fog drenched northern coast. The misery of poverty, inequality and pollution. 
Life, and the world, they are such a mixture. And comedy. 
I want to make art that has it all. 
I want my paintings to have the beauty and the pathos. 
That is not too much to want...
