Painting is an addiction, a salve, a balm. It scrubs my emotions.
A painting of a bluebird is only that, so I am less interested in painting bluebirds. I prefer to paint batches of accumulated emotions in response to, and as commentaries on, relationships and social interactions. It helps me understand; it helps me let go. I find limitless opportunities for empathy.
I paint alla prima and that rhythm moves the brush and shapes my titles, which feed each other. That interaction is your invitation. While the titles provide clues to the tone and subject of the paintings, they should also make you laugh, thereby opening you up to the visual image. Once you have combined the picture and the title in your mind, I hope you find some resonance – both personal and universal –with the human melody.
