|I am very interested in what I see. Certain things become magical because of the light, and I feel compelled to try to put them down.
Specific color relationships are very important to me and I'm interested in paint that looks like paint up close (wet and abstract) and that turns into something real when further back.
Compositionally, I am also interested in trying to make paintings that I have not seen before. That means arranging things in perhaps a different way and, more often than not, bringing something very close to the front of the space in the painting.
I try to keep exploring both the real world and my world of painting. Sometimes what I attempt works, sometimes it doesn't. But it's endless and exciting for me. I keep being surprised by what I find. I feel like an explorer.
