Moon ShotMy work has developed over the past two decades, starting with more representative work, and gradually becoming more and more abstract.  This happened naturally over time.  I rarely start a painting with any preconceived notions of where it will end up.  I may have a specific color or shape in mind, but there’s very little forethought on what the final painting will look like.  Instead, I begin a painting and just let the emerging composition direct me, as opposed to trying to drive it in a particular direction.  I continue to work it until it develops into a balanced, (hopefully) aesthetically pleasing form.  At that point, I know it’s done.  I appreciate you taking the time to look at my work and I sincerely hope you like it.
