If I try to define my work and why I do it, I'd have to say painting is about process and awareness and compulsion. Step by step you build a piece. As the work takes shape your focus sharpens. Your understanding or feeling about the piece becomes clearer. Why do people paint? What makes a good painting? I think it's the contact with the divine that we occasionally get a glimpse of and if we're lucky we convey in our work. I personally feel compelled to seek it, to touch it. I really don't have any talent at this, just desire to do it. Perhaps desire is bad. The Buddhists think so. Who knows? Some things just can't be explained with words.
