"Nightswimming and other Nocturnal Pleasures" is about the freedom, pleasure and excitement that can be found in nighttime activities. Compositions include pool-hopping with friends as teenagers, a quiet bike ride through the park, skinny dipping... youthful indiscretion and mystery. There is just something undeniably seductive about being alive in the darkness.  I hope to remind the viewer that there are places that are magical, people that can change your life and feelings that can electrify. These are the things that make life worth living and my paintings are to serve as a reminder that they are never too far away.
