These paintings are a collaboration between me, the surface and whatever angel happens to arrive on a given day. Both the left and right brain play an active role...though, thankfully, not at the same time. The problem solving, process driven left creates the initial plan and the intuitive, lovely right brain expresses emotion and energy through color and mark making.
"When you're in the studio painting, there are a lot of people in there with you - your teacher, friends, painters from history, critics....and one by one if you're really painting they walk out... and if you're really painting YOU walk out". - Phillip Guston
