An ordained, random event became an intersection in his life.
Having married and moved into their first home, he and his wife needed a large painting to fill a vacant wall. The artist (who had been there all along) emerged. Almost as if someone else was guiding his hands…a painting filled the canvas.
With a grand leap of faith, his hobby became his calling and his life’s work.
With his wife and two daughters close by, David spends his days in a sun drenched studio filled with bird nests, flea market treasures, black and white photographs, an African Wildebeest, Classical music, pipe tobacco, french press coffee, a curated collection of books and always, patchouli. But some days he prefers to paint in the quiet, inspired by the sparrows, wrens and chickadees living at his window. It is here that he creates images that transport you from what you see into that sometimes faraway place of what you feel and what you believe – and his wish is that the viewer look long enough to walk away with a renewed sense of hope.
Let your eyes search his paintings and may you be blessed as you find a place to rest, hope for your heart, light for the darkness…and continue on…as we stumble on…this journey together down redemption road.
