Painting is a means of communicating & deepening one's personal perceptions & reactions to the world, the small things that strike us as poignant, even if only for a fleeting instant.
Painting is a means for closer observation of the world, and of one's self. Representational painting is a language for expressing or recording what's visible, but I feel it is of most interest when focused on something not entirely visible. In other words, I try to paint the exterior world in such a way as to evoke the mysterious richness & vastness of the interior world each of us carries within.
My hope is that some of that feeling is passed on or generated anew in the viewer.
