I am drawn to scenes that have an underlying sense of geometry and combination of colors that I judge to contain the possibility of delicious harmonies. I try to refine and distill these elements using the special properties and personalities of the medium itself, whether oil, pastel or watercolor. In making a painting I want to allow the medium to have its own voice, but I try to imbue the medium with the moods, memories, and visual delights I found in that original instant of perception.
