Painting offers a plane of visual creative freedom. My painting experience is vast in its metamorphosis, from work to work, moment to moment. The scientist in me likes varying technical ingredients in each piece, contemplating formula ideas… The idealist reaches for the heights of beauty…. The Soul expresses itself in contentment while creating…. The laborer pushes to get the thing done fast…. Sometimes it’s a surgical zone, emphasizing acute concentration on delicate painterly feats. Or I may play with the paint, follow the feeling, or just make mess intentionally...why not? I am an adventurer on the canvas, in the paint, in the illusion I wander. My work may bear great complexity, yet sheer simplicity. I believe it is what we are in the deepest and shallowest sense that makes our art come forth. Through experience we find art, through art we find experience.
