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.

For years I have kept some of this artwork more private for a number of reasons, and feel in response to the ever growing drumbeat of the anti openness and anti gay movement, that has changed.
By nature I tend to keep a low profile, events of late have made it clear those days are gone. Now I think it maybe necessary to pronounce my feelings.
