Announcement   I'm an artist just because that's the way I was born.
I've always been one.
There is no story here. I am not going to make claims in order to sell my work.
If needed, I could supply countless credentials in my life and art educational background and studies.
But I deeply believe, that should not be the reason for my work to resonate with someone.
The work should speak for itself and stand on its own.
Should someone buy a piece of work from me, I like to know, they did so because of my work, and not because of some story about how art saved my life or how many exhibitions I have been in, or how many people of impotance I know, or what movement or cause I belong to, and even color my skin is.
This is me. This is my art. And should you ask for my personal life background, I shall be happy to send you anything you want on it.
If you love my work and would like to own a piece of me, you need not go any further.
Art without fences, and no strings attached. Just me, and my art, ... as it has always been.

I love Russ's interpretation of Buck McCain's bronze statue of St Francis outside of Holy Faith Episcopal Church in Santa Fe New Mexico. Painted during Russ's latest travels to Santa Fe and the Southwest....I have added it to my growing collection of Potak paintings of Santa Fe. Thanks Russ.. the painting speaks for itself of your amazing expressionist gift for the use of color!

About

Life is bigger that what we thought, and painting is the only way I know to express it. For me, it comes from a place on the inside.

Being born was responsible for my needing to paint. It was my first language. And it still is. Speech and the written word came later. Expressing life and spirit with visual interpretations and visuals are what its all about for me. What I feel, sense, experience, and dream, are my biggest motivators. I seek to express honestly, and intuitively from within.
