My paintings are about the process of painting and my affection for the paint.  I don’t draw on the canvas and often have only a general idea of what is going to happen when I start painting.  I make a mark and then react.  I work the surface, applying paint with a brush or knife and pulling up color laid down in earlier paint layers.  Through this process, the painting changes until I see what I want to see.  I consider a finished painting nothing more than an image recording the time I spent working on it and the thoughts I had during the process.  This has not changed in the forty years I have been painting.  I still have my first painting and in it I see this process as a confrontation with a surface and a box of pigments.
