What inspired me On this artwork was the Retablos in the New Mexico Chapels and churches.
Painted and carved wood are old and collected materials I have gathered throughout the years.   The subject Of this retablo had to be Angels who I chose to believe watch over us and protect us.  Traditional symbols like the pineapple is considered an expression of "welcome,”  and symbolizes assets we appreciate in our home – friendship, hospitality and warmth.  The palm tree, resting on an angel’s head is a symbol of victory, triumph, peace and eternal life, originating in the ancient Near East and the Mediterranean world.

A retablo is a Latin American devotional painting, especially a popular or folk art one using iconography derived from traditional Catholic church art. The word “retablo” comes from Spanish, and is equivalent to reredos in English or retable in French: a painting, sculpture or combination of the two. The Latin etymology of this Spanish word means "board behind". Retablos use carved and gilded wood and painted figures to tell a story. The tradition of making them was taken to the new Spanish Empire in America from the times of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

I’m an artist/architect who, upon thinking about the blessings of what has been a full, productive life, is proud to say that he’s remained a child much of his time. I’m a representational artist but not one out to replicate subject matter in ways true to life. I’m more the dissembler, and enjoy combining incongruent elements in whimsical ways, sometimes humorously to reflect the pleasure that comes with discovering new things. I avoid planning ahead in favor of letting the process lead the way. While listening to the music, I’m never happier than when painting away, adding bits of wood, cloth, string, or anything else that’s handy to finally define something that’s the sum of its parts. I’m a narrative artist who makes stuff to tell stories. I’ve tried to be honest by developing my own visual language in hopes of encouraging onlookers to consider other realities. While I’ve enjoyed the recognition that has come my way, I’ve treasured the privilege of living an artful life.
