A Healthy Optimism

Flag Portraits, Weather Reporting, and Yoga Paintings


The following works include small paper sketches and paintings of various predicaments and moods.  I think these drawings/paintings have a complexity of optimism, a-can-do-attitude, while being a bit anxious.

With every opportunity there is an excitement to make something better, but there are also fears of failure or stress of unforeseen complications.  The works combine positive thinking and nervous cheerleading. 

The characters or forms tend to float between being a bit proactive and the feeling of being stuck in one's own time.
