I rarely set out to produce a preset idea or piece of work. I begin with a blank canvas and proceed to cover it with colors that I am feeling at the moment. These colors and texture change as the canvas expresses my feelings.
My influences are primarily nature, things I see (my way) and my surroundings. I use large canvasses and large brushes as well as my painting knives to achieve the effect and texture I need for my piece. I paint in oil most of the time as it allows me to blend build and massage the painting until the composition, color and texture fill the canvas to my satisfaction.
When I feel good about a piece, it is completed and ready to sign
