Artist Statement

Retired Old Blue speaks to my fascination with once dignified artifacts that through deterioration have lost their nobility or usefulness. This train engine image was made late in the evening, through a chain-link fence, in Eureka, California. I used the fence as a tripod.

I have developed a style that obscures boundaries between painting and photography, bringing out shape and ambience over content and locale. I strive for a sense of mystery and poignancy in my photographs.
