This piece is a part of my series of geishas in varied environments.  This painting includes a group of cardinals.  My studio is often surrounded by these birds and sometimes it seems that they are calling to me to get out there to work.  They are often a part of my work for multiple reasons but it is hard to forget them when they speak to me so often.  This woman is strong and she is beautiful.

Getting to Know Scott

Scott works out of a 1947 Chevrolet school bus that is parked permanently in his Texas backyard. His highly expressionistic, figurative work is reminiscent of contemporary street art, largely due to the inclusion of spray paint in his arsenal of media. Scott is inspired by images he comes across in books or in daily life. His bold statement pieces demonstrate artful yet fanciful interpretations of world cultures. Each painting, through its dynamic layers of color and metallics, presents a story that awaits the imaginative viewer.
