The wonder of painting and the challenge is in the infinite number of choices it presents to the artist. Choosing a subject whether it be a landscape a portrait or a still life will provide the initial spark and a point of reference for a painting. And so it begins! For me there is adventure to the painting process which comes from experimenting with design value and color to convey my sense of a particular person or place. And while I paint in a manner which combines both literal and impressionistic aspects my goal as a representational painter is to stay true to the subject by painting what I see.
