Statement

 I am self taught , that is to say what ever talent I may have has come to me naturally,  I could always draw and paint, etc. but until about two years ago,  I really did nothing about it.  They say  " No man is an island". Well, then maybe I am a penninsula,  I feel at my very core that I am a truly creative soul and the fact that being so visual and abstract in my thinking has made being in a linear world a bit of a struggle for as long as I can remember and two defenses for this condition are my art and a sense of humor.  I have lived in California my whole life and mostly in Marin County (since about 1964-65) and anyone who knows the area can tell you that this area is not only a beautiful place to live in, as well as expensive, but is a creative nexus in our hemisphere with San Fransisco just the other side of the bridge and Sonoma county to the north.  I feel fortunate to be around such supportive and nurturing people and although I know they are there, I really don't personally know a lot of artists here and I would like to meet more of them, the real artists, the ones with something deeper say, you know who you are.  I could go on, but my point is, these works are just another slice of my mind and where It may go.  Each piece take about two months to complete and like the rest of my work, this is pointillism  and as with some of my pieces there is a watercolor wash on 14"x17" acid free, blah, blah,blah. Suffice it to say, I try to use the best materials and if you need to know more, then email me or something. I now am living in Colorado only because it has become impossible for me to continue in California with the high cost of living due to the influx of tech noobs moving into the area and squeezing middle class families like mine out.  I do hope this is not too much description.  Most sincerely, Michael Stanford
