Human curiosities abound for things that are unobvious. I found myself in a constant state

 
 

of searching for meanings of painting. It seems to me, if the subject of a picture reflects

 
 

a thought the techniques that a painter uses reflect an approach. Simple techniques

 
 

executed with simple tools fit my thoughts and habits. The layering of my work is often

 
 

a result of prolonged examination of an idea which gets modified and refined as layers

 
 

are added with familiar tools. My aim is a final result that is immediately pure and complete

 
 

with underlying complexity, whether it is figurative or abstract.
