A painter starts his process with an empty canvas, an idea, a concept. He takes in his surroundings, his ideas, the materials he must work with in order to produce the art. The idea, the vision must be composed, space must be defined in the dimension he chooses and then applied. It’s all just a composition waiting to be played out. My palette is flexible and developing, adapting to the “canvas” I set before myself. I try to give the viewer a glimpse through my unique lens, to envision what I see and experience. The beauty, the chaos, the passion, fragility and the inherent strength of people and of the planet on which we live. My mentor once asked me to describe a painting of mine. I started explaining, describing, discussing. He became upset with me. He said to me “Are you a philosopher or a painter? Use three words or less to describe your work”. I love color, I love form, I love paint. This is the way that I speak from the inside.
