Artist Summary

A working trip to Marbella in Andalusia a few years ago found me painting in a small bar in Puerto Deportivo that was full of both locals and tourists.

There was something there to fill each of the senses: the laughter of people at the many tables; the way in which servers interacted with all the guests; the unhurried and comfortable attitude of workers, even though they were on their lunch break; the harbor buildings in the background; the red umbrellas; the smell of the ocean; and above all, a general sense of well-being that seemed to grow out of the ground itself, right along with the swaying palm trees.

Returning to my hotel that evening I didn’t feel just satisfied, I felt whole. The kind of whole one gets after setting personal expectations and then fulfilling them. Or maybe, and better still, the kind of whole that comes from a greater understanding of what life, at its very best, is meant to be.
