Artistic Process:

My process involves the manipulation of color, value and shape.  I start with the application of many colors in a haphazard fashion infusing the canvas or board with energy.  Colors and shapes overlap one another.  At some point, I will cover the canvas with a transparent color which provides a unity to the painting.  When I begin, I have no preconceived idea of what it will become.  I use prearranged colors only when I am working on a commission.

My mind is active with the concepts of value, color combinations, subtly of color blendings, shapes and stroke lines.  Crayon is one of my constant tools.  I will use the crayons to create  color activity and construct shapes with line.  I am continually thinking of the balance between colors, values and shapes. My desire is to create a rich surface.

Composition and movement are very important to me.  Once I have the basic color combinations and value differences, my eye turns toward the movement throughout the painting as created by the shapes an
