I manipulate metals and minerals and bonding solutions in order to provoke emotional responses from people I will usually never meet. That which happens in the process some people call art. My talent for creating icons and illusions turned into a lifetime of manipulations... in various pigments, bronze and steel, some quite large, which loom in museums, schools, collections and public places all over Texas. Here on this blog you can watch my creative actions and insights unfold...

A commission with a purpose...

Recently I was asked to paint this large (40 x 60) landscape for AAR; American Art Resources. AAR is a Houston based company that specializes in consulting with the medical industry in placement of art to maximize healing and general effectiveness for patients in hospital care. It turns out that some of my easel painting fits their objectives very well... and after placing several of my works, they special ordered this painting, called Deer Valley Cactus...



Here are a few more of my works that have been used in Texas hospitals...



The resaerch AAR has done has created a demand for what they call "evidence based art," art that has been proven to help patients and medical staff in healing and rehabilitation.


 Congratulations to AAR on the groundbreaking work they are doing, and thanks for choosing Cushman art!
