About prices, collecting art and etc.
Art collectors know that art and it's value is more than the piece alone, it's not only what you see, but who created it and why. Do you know why I choose to paint cows? (The answer is in my artist's statement on the Biography page)
Each painting you see here represents a moment in time, and has a story to tell. Sometimes it's obvious and sometimes not, I hope you will take your time and look at each one, like when you walk into a museum to simply view and enjoy. What stories to you see in the cows eyes?
If you agree with me that an artist's body of work speaks for them, please be sure to visit all of my categories, including the commissioned work to get the fullest 'picture' of me as an artist.
I want everyone who visits my website to enjoy the viewing experience, and not be distracted by price and "Buy Now" buttons. If you love the work or have a comment, I'd love to hear from you. If you are interested in prices, just ask, there's no obligation or pressure.
