"With color as my focus, I either condense a subject out of freely moving hues or I study a given subject until I can sense the colors moving through it. In the first case, I work with the dynamics of colors and color relationships until the subject begins to reveal itself. This requires that I be alert to weed out easy ideas and habits so that the painting be kept flexible as long as possible. In the second case I begin by looking for the underlying color in a subject. This color will shine through all the others and set the mood of the painting. Subsequent colors are overlaid on this foundation in a transparent manner until the figure, landscape or still life arises.
My main interest is in relationships -- what contrasts, what merges, what is the movement and dynamic. The human form has always been a favorite subject with the challenge being to see how it is both connected to and stands apart from its surroundings."
