'Winter at Westminster'
Like a poem, my paintings begin with an observation, a feeling, a hunch or an idea, a memory and are then refined so that every color, every shape and form, every gesture is woven together. Like music my paintings begin with a theme or a phrase and evolve endlessly as an improvisational performance. Working with e oil I build the paintings up in layers to create a luminosity or light that glows from within the painting. Discovery, curiosity, playfulness.
