An Artist Statement
Painting intrigues me. Curiosity keeps me going. Because of that curiosity and intrigue, I paint.
Once I begin a series, get all the pieces working together and there is a potency to the work, I will continue with it until I feel the tickle to move on.
That tickle is my bellwether and always comes with a new curiosity. I will not/cannot for love, money, fame or status stay after that point.
This may be the single reason why, after nearly fifty years, intrigue and curiosity has not left me and I am still able to make paintings.
