My abstract collection deals with my memory, feelings, and experiences.
I often subconsciously recall mental images of certain places I have visited and scenes that have touched my soul for their intense beauty.
These visions require careful planning and are painted with emotional intensity.
It is a daily struggle to paint these visions with focus, spontaneity, clarity and simplicity.
The final image is always a mystery and surprise, as there is an element of chance. I never know what they will look like when complete.
I generally do not give elaborate descriptions of each piece, as I believe they must be experienced and felt and I prefer the viewer to interpret them as they choose.
Paintings, once created. have a life of their own separate from the maker.
