Put it on the Line

Put it on the Line, 36"x 36", oil on canvas.

I've been thinking a lot about composition lately and the proper prep work to achieve interesting balance. I hope Wayne Thiebaud would be proud.

For Us to Strive

For us to Strive, 30"x 48", oil on canvas.

This was an enjoyable world to live in for a month. I contemplated on the various roles that would make a racing team successful. While only the driver gets to hold up the trophy, there are many hands that make that moment possible. It reminds me of a quote by Albert Einstein.... 

"Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a purpose.

From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing do know: that man is here for the sake of other menabove all for those upon whose smile and well-being on own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received."
