    Art Description:

    See American Dream no.4 Convenient Parking for a detailed description of the American Dream sequence. Here we have an added element of desire with a sign promising "Hot Donuts". There’s something lurid inherent to a neon sign. I bury this just beneath the ostensible cheer. The dark side of the American Dream isn’t what is advertised. It's the promise of fulfilled desires which is illuminated. Framed in a pickled white wooden shadowbox frame.

    Medium Used: Oil and Latex on Canvas

    A body of work should not be a cadaver evidencing life that was but rather the flash-point for life which ignites anew on each renewed encounter.
