I dream in vivid color. Sometimes the red is so bright that I can' t believe it exists inside my head. I paint in layers of color. Each layer that I paint exposes a new dimension.The shapes that are formed dictate my direction. I always know the subject well, but I don't know the final interpretation until the last layers are applied.
All of my abstracts contain an element of surprise. And serendipity is part of the plan.
