My interest in painting is with direct paint application in an expressive manner while using pure color combinations and meaty brushstrokes. The energetic emotion of moving paint around the canvas, searching relentlessly for shapes and colors, keeps me from seeing details. My colors are intensified and spontaneous in my hopes for a painting full of spirit.
