Horizon 4

Pure forms and lines in this classic Quiros style piece … one that would make a good foundation for a rock art poster. What do you think?

Strive 2

Current mood … constant striving, reaching for the stars … never give up on my hopes and dreams. It should be easier, but then I guess it wouldn’t be a game.

Steal Away

Another recent favorite … a man sneaking off somewhere, avoiding the conflict. The red lines pull the composition together and neither the foreground or the background would survive as well on its own.

Red Pose 2

Here’s a recent favorite of mine. I like the slightly troubled look on the face of the person on the left and the attention to it from the person on the right. What does it look like is going on here to you? There’s definitely a story there … I love how art can take on a life of its own.


“Hats” is a bit of a departure from my usual simple expression in that I have added some abstract bright colors and shapes. I have some trouble categorizing my work. I suppose that is for the critics to do. You can apply whatever adjectives you want to. I am just joyfully expressing two people with hats here.

Older 2

As my body ages, the theme of the struggle between the spirit and the body comes up in my work again and again. Perhaps expressing it in my art will assist me in coming to grips with this dilemma and will help my audience find the most positive and effective attitude for it … resistance is not only futile, but unworkable.

Dreamer 7

This is one of those where I impressed myself with the simplicity and power my work can have. The pride in my accomplishment rests with capturing an exact moment in my being where I am expressing the wonder of dreaming and creating. It is magical.

Performance 3

I was thinking of an actor making a profound statement for a dramatic role and created a bold statement in line and color. Artists and actors are doing similar things in creating expressions of life outside of themselves though often drawing on the deeply personal.


An expression of simplicity and sensitivity. Days like this are priceless and I wish it for the whole world every day … it is possible.


A common theme in my images is people haunted by pictures of past misfortunes. “Scarred” is such a work. It is unhealthy to have part of you, or even all of you, living in the past. Survival depends on confronting and contending with the present and creating the future.
