Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

I rarely explain my work, but with this painting I’d like to. In some way our parrot here represents my slightly Hispanic heritage. My Great Great Grandpa,William Roxburgh came to the America’s in 1841. He left Scotland via Liverpool and made his home in Vera Cruz, there he married  Juana Beltran who’s Mexican blood is in my veins. Their son Alfred Felix came to San Diego in 1899. His wife Margaret was an artist who loved to draw and paint Balboa Park from it’s inception.

Otto Dix

4′ x 5′ ink, charcoal and acrylic on canvas 1995

The previous artwork was all created before 1995. “Otto” was the last painting from those years. There was a beautiful exhibit that year. I then felt it was time to concentrate on my “Scenic artist” endeavors, lucky timing.

Although these paintings were created during during tense times.
They were then and are now a transport to Freedom.

four figures entered the dream

two of which had but one face

as a group we traveled towards a spring

our thirst the only bond

to taste their magic

I swallow my dreams

to taste their magic

Vision after vision

lift up and through these walls

and still I am here
