What is Stanimation Productions???

I am a fine artist that dapples in commercial art every now and then. My paintings serve to enlighten your surroundings wherever you may be...In the office, they may help promote teamwork, determination and hard work, and at home a sense of peace of mind, rest, love, and harmony with family and community. As a commercial artist, communication and entertainment are the purpose of my creative work. Animation can provide you with a way to create effective training videos, tell your story, share a joke, or send that special greeting card to a friend. Illustration can help you advertise your products in a unique and effective way, putting you above your competition. Caricatures at parties entertain the masses. Books and magazines can become more vivid and stunning with the perfect drawings. Comics are a great way to share humor with loved ones.

A Street View On Mt. Diablo Boulevard
24" x 3-0"
If you've ever driven to Walnut Creek from Highway 24 East, then you've probably been here before. Massive concrete shapes ominously hover over us on stilts. A dry Mt. Diablo stands in the distance begging for rain as cars swarm back and forth into the dusk of a slow and dramatic sunset.

Mt.Diablo Paintings

This is a work in progress called "Foliage Against Sunlight." For the most part, I consider this painting finished, except for one area where the paint got a little too drippy. The dripping paint technique is meant to hint at the subtleties of the way the tiny twigs intertwine with each other off the branches in the distance. While Leonardo De Vinci would have taken the time to graphically illustrate every twig in the woods, I have a more impressionistic approach in my paintings. My philosophy is that it would be more more effective in our modern times to take a high resolution photograph than to attempt the time staking task of painting every twig in the woods. The brush strokes and various inventive techniques I use in my paintings hint at details. They capture an essence of the subject matter in a way that is interesting to look at.
