Coming together of multiple equal important qualities in the creation of artwork is a continual excitement and challenge in my process.  We can talk about the medium to start with.  The wetness of the mix, and the strength of the color, then there’s the paper and its acceptance and layering of the pigment.  The water and the result of how dry or wet the medium and how it influences handling. 

Let’s also talk about the appearance or composition and its purpose.  In the flow are objects, and qualities of light.  I play with patterns and the flow of those patterns with my love of visual geometry. My question often is, how can I create a painting the has the movement of nature with the hard shapes of structure.  What are the characters in my work and how do they add to the feeling whether they are obvious or not? Over all my goal is to create art that reflects the human spirit with the flow and vitality of life.
