In Our Window





All everything is connected. My steps and my breath all keep moving it along. The work, all the acts, process, it’s all in each breath each step. Each day pushed along getting closer to it. Paint.Painting. The actual work of making a painting is arduous. All the gears spinning in anticipation. Weeks of thought, hapticly informs the agenda. Now panel ready, canvas stretched. Sized canvas is ready for ground. Ground is dry, it’s screaming for that first smush oil.

Colors made. X-medium is added. Now we are close to it. Piles of paint on the table. Knives ready each with its own pile of color.


Let it start.


Two , three and some times four days are gone. I’m euphoric, looking at it, staring for hours. Neck tingles. When I really see it the work is done and it’s on the wall.

These paintings all come from a playful, intuitive and haptic art making process. Minimal swaths of color juxtaposed 

with a gestural history of mark making from knives full of paint.

 Many panels or multiples set up situations that guide and direct the action.

These are some of my ways

Thank you.
