People ask me what I paint, and I reply, anything I want to! I am driven to paint to quiet my inner self. I am excited to try new techniques on old subjects. How can I paint things with a new twist and still keep them realistic? I find my creativity is at it’s best when I am standing at my table with a big brush, big piece of good paper and top notch juicy watercolors. I strive to do a painting at one sitting (or standing) to let my juices flow with ease. I like to be able to splash and splat with excitement and abandonment. The colors I use are my signature.
When a painting is "finished" I am ready to let go. The creative process is my joy. My design is often a soft T shape. I create pattern and texture by unusual pieces of found items from the house, streets, ocean or just plain trash. I must like the way the painting moves and the way it moves me, the colors excite me and the light sparkles. When people see my work I want them to feel wowed! Then I want them to take the piece home and love it and enjoy it.
