My painting is both realistic and abstract; it is on that elusive edge between there and not there. On first look everything is in place then all dissolves. I want realism and abstraction to take turns. I want a painting sometimes very evocative of time and place sometimes overwhelming in abstract structural logic. I look for a surprise a drama a different way of seeing. Each painting is a new work. I look for the relatedness of everything trying not to see anything for itself alone but as a part of the whole. I try to create excitement while ordering chaos. I try to make paintings that are unusual that utilize a different interior space. In this context my subjects take on meanings other than the accustomed ones. They are more than still life or landscape; they are comments on thinking and seeing.
