My paintings include improvisational pieces tempered by a decreasing realism. I employ mixed water media, various objects, and acrylic skins on paper, canvas, board, wood, tar paper, and linoleum. Acrylic medium is applied with brush and knife, by throwing, pouring, and stamping paint. My differing styles are not necessarily evolving; what happens in the present is what you see and frequently a surprise. That to me is the mystery of creating. My passion is painting; I invite you to share this excitement with me.
