I think of my endeavor as “waging peace through creativity”. I like to express in oil paint and watercolors my intense curiosity about the world.
I like handling the paint while I explore an intriguing mystery in the interplay between shadow and light. I try to identify a feeling I have about the subject; often, it is yearning, wanting to know more. If I can put that feeling into the painting, whether or not someone else would find it there, then that gives me satisfaction. My painting might evoke a memory, or inspire a new creative project, or elicit a recurring thought of another person.
