As words are to human thoughts...Paintings are to human visions. In my loose definition of paintings we include also work in pigments, pencil, pastels, excrement, etc.. As long as there is as little influence of mechanical means as possible. We will try to be as objective as possible without the overly subjective judgements of critical thought...which, in general prevents us from seeing what is really there and understanding how the visual can expand our conscience undertanding of the whole.

Oil Painting by Tom Birkner “Water Park Lovers”
Finding the fantastic within the commonplace…It is almost too easy to draw the viewer’s interest into a piece if it is filled with wild surrealistic images or heavily ladened with symbolism.  When the artist can bring interest into the everyday world around us they can teach us to do the same thing…teaching us to be here now…enriching our life experience…Showing us the way to expand our perceptions.
