“While immersed in a project, there are times when I see it as primitive and at other times refined… regard- less, I am pressed to move forward, aware of pending modifications… yet enjoying the expression of the mo- ment… I work from the canvas… with no pre sketching… but a more innate exploration of my own inner space while being aware of the necessity to remain open to the spontaneous, hidden dimensions appearing and reappearing on the canvases… with an endless appreciation that color is such an obvious and important

Am I discovering aspects of my own identity in the process… wondering is this about me? Maybe so… regardless, I am there and somehow absent, while the actual painting occurs. Appeared to and appealed to by the urgent necessity to cooperate with what is developing and yet making my own voice heard as a distant director of what must be the reluctant conclusion of that one work… if another is to begin…part of my life. Thank you for the privilege of sharing my work with you. “
