My paintings appear to be non-representational, but they all start from references: hand tools, shaping tools, and fastening tools like hammers, chisels, wrenches, pliers, trowels and vises. My father was and is a carpenter, so I was around a lot of tools when I was growing up.
The tools evolve and gradually dissolve, through continual revision and abstraction.
I “draw” with paint to establish motion-filled compositions. I add wet, washy color swatches, areas of thicker paint, and pencil markings.
