About the Collection
Every painting presents the question, how do I paint what I see? I find more and more that any ideas I have when I start are usually best put aside. My mind will probably never know beforehand what will happen in a painting; at best the ideas form a loose framework. It’s a constant dance of intent and letting the mystery unfold. Usually it’s the mystery, not knowing how this stroke, this line or this color will turn out but forging ahead anyway, that proves to be most intriguing and also hardest to do. My favorite paintings happen when I can let that mystery take the lead.
