  1. I LOVE this. It is so watery and cold, and everything that is great about abstraction!

    Great job! 🙂

  2. Nothing better than grey and abstraction… if one has ever seen the Canadian prairies on a dark snowy day, they will understand why your work has such power. Grey abstraction has nature’s power behind it. Heaven for me is grey abstraction, a prairie storms in February, a frozen Sunday with no sun… one of your grey paintings! Heaven… because you have to snuggle into blankets, or snuggle together, or your soul has to snuggle deeply into a Miles Davis record or an Annie Proulx’s writing to stay warm. Dark horizons are heaven, grey is the light of god… no surprise you are from a Northern US state… you are the master of Minne-malism! 🙂

    • And you are so very kind. And yes, I agree, I don’t find that grey gloomy. The fog and mist and darkness against white is very comforting. And then of course snuggling helps too. Thank you Daniel.

  3. Your work is an excellent example of how your focus on Minnemalism creates genuine expression – which has not been robbed of its truth by concern for what the/an art world thinks of it or how it may be institutionalized. Whether it is intentional or not, you remain unabsorbed by all the nonsense of others placing exterior values on your inner truth(s). Your work is an excellent example of this best aspect of Outsider Art….
