Picture a blank canvas. Prior to beginning a new painting, I sit and stare at a blank canvas. My attempt is to empty my mind. I have no preconceived image. After some time, I stand in front of the canvas and apply paint. The process has begun. I step back to view the canvas and take my cues from what I see.
I am interested in conveying spaciousness. I believe there is infinite space within each of us. It is that place of stillness which brings joy. The spaciousness I attempt in my art is meant to be a reminder of possibilities, not necessarily a sense of joy.
When painting, one canvas leads to another and each is an attempt to reach my ongoing quest. When “caught up” in the mental exercise of self-validation, the painting suffers. Therefore, I attempt to let go of thoughts.
I don’t expect viewers to respond to my work the same way I do. If any emotion is felt while looking at my work, that is enough.
