About the Artist:
Michael’s art travels between two paths; one more realistic and the other more abstract and soul based. He usually begins by observing and reviewing a photo of a place, person, building, sky or a landscape. The photo acts as a tool to isolate whatever interests him, and in the process, the ordinary will reveal something extraordinary about its place in his world. These images provide the “bones” of his work. He absorbs the feeling of the image and what develops on the canvas is the feeling on adrenaline! The moment, the feeling and the colors are punched up. His paintings capture the essence of that moment; a feeling; a future.
"Ultimately, I hope the paint on the canvas provides a doorway into my world and will capture my desire to touch another receptive soul."
