Painting, to me, is a process that is fueled by the need to create. I don’t set out to produce art about one subject or another and never start with a drawing or sketch but with the first application of paint. From then on, the rest follows and like a jazz musician, the music just flows. It begins to take on a life of its own and becomes a part of me for as long as the journey lasts.
The significant challenge then remains when is a painting finished. To me, art is a synthesis of my personal feelings, the colors that inspire me and my materials and techniques. It is only when those parameters are met that the work can truly be considered finished.
