I love these things—building an image through an experimental process of pouring, scraping, blotting and brushing on color until something with a kind of “truth” comes about. My intentions are less visual than emotional.

After some initial mental planning, I’ll manipulate the paint with a slow persistence until I begin to recognize something I remember and this is continued until a whole is completed.

If my idea was strong, no matter how the process unfolds, something that contains both my interest and respect for painting ​and​ for nature remains.
