How do we know who we are? What kind of questions do we ask ourselves about who we think we are? Do we ask, or ever say, "Where in the world did that come?" I do. And folks frequently ask me, "Where you get your ideas from?"
I have created a limited edition, edition of 12, signed book for the first pieces in my current series “Rugged Individualism.” In this series I am painting individuals who have asked themselves, "Who am I, and what do I stand for?" These individuals know who they are and are not afraid to be unique individuals, one-of-a-kinds, like art work.
I also try to answer the questions: How do we know what we know? As artists, how do we know whether our ideas and concepts are in the work that we've just created?
