I act on impulse - deriving meaning from doing. Some ideas: Much of the work is a study of aloneness. Faces and figures caught in a moment of quiet mystery. Individuals move me, the long distance between people. Something about the feeling of unreality when looking more than a moment in the mirror, or at another person. I care for the people I paint - that's important. It's easy to care about nearly anyone. Another channel of the work explores celebrity. Renewing heroes from childhood, actors, historical figures. These paintings aim to reach a broader audience. There is a colorful series born out of the Synchronism school of painting, introduced to me by New Orleans artist Auseklis Ozols. Each of these smaller works explores a precise color harmony within a bursting composition. Divorced of representation, they become a creative laboratory.
