"My paintings, which are painted from life, are records of sensations: of what I feel about the things I see. I am forever engaged by the formal possibilities of painting—of color and form together—and my compositions reflect this profound engagement. The act of seeing—which includes attempting to suggest the passing of time while capturing the essence of things—is more important to me than the subjects themselves. Words can sometimes help us to unravel life’s mysteries, but there are other ways to “say” something and painting is one of the most powerful. Eventually (and hopefully) my paintings will stand on their own and allow those who view them a space for contemplation and offer a respite. Of course, a painting can never entirely be what you or I want it to be: it can only be what it needs to become.”
