Being a visual artist is joy and privilege for me even though this calling is not without it’s challenges. I express myself best though my images using color and line. As a painter of nature and abstraction, I combine the two approaches into a single idea leading to a finished work. I enjoy the feel of the paint and the challenge of my quest and the feeling of satisfaction when I achieve my goal. Another quest is to bring a smile or pleasant thought to those who see my paintings. My process is to start with large splashes of color and this leads me on to find out where the painting wants to go. The anal retentive side of my brain kicks in and tries to make order of this chaos. The result is usually many lines or fine details. Here is the big pause and the point which will make or break this creation. Look at my work and see my conclusions to this problem. When I’m painting there is no time or stress...just painting.
