Personal Statement

My choices to express the nature of my art have expanded with the menu of techniques and paints.  Watercolor, ink, oil, tempera, and acrylic.  Each revealing unique natures.

My newest efforts with acrylic and water on paper show my continuing enjoyment in the spontaneity of paint performing.  You can imagine the water and concentrations of pigment, moving through changes as it dries, becoming a final fixed expression.  I limit myself to the colors, the concentrations, and spacial choices.  What follows is spontaneous artistic playfulness.
