This is a painting by my youngest son Danny.
It is easy for the sons or daughters of an artist to be hidden and lost
in the shadow their father casts…. Danny and john are the sunlight that
surround and give life to my shadow, they are my greatest source of
inspiration, they have become my teachers.

Where as traditional realism defines and directs us to a specific conclusion abstract art can be ambiguous and subjective with symbolic relationships where the artist creates his own language.
Unlike painting forms that we know exist in our conscious reality the abstract painter relies on the subconscious for direction, this forces the abstract artist to question and search sometimes blindly for that right sense of direction. No road map exists to determine the way, he trusts instinct, feeling and intuition. This vagueness or ambiguity leaves greater room for interpretation with the meaning of an abstract painting being unique to each viewer.
