the world is filled with images waiting to be painted.
I strive to portray more than the actual. When I paint a surface, is is important to me that my audience is able to feel as well as to see the texture and light. This goal of discovering more is why I paint. Artistically, I feel that I travel down many different roads, but with the same vision.
My work process has a rhythm: from photos, to drawings, to painted sketches, to a final piece. Drawings and sketches are an experience that allows me to adjust composition and familiarize myself with the subject. By the time the final piece is begun I often know the players, light forms, etc. almost by heart which allows me greater freedom in the application of paint.
