In what I call improvisational sketch painting, I put “marks” on canvas or heavy canvas-like paper, using pigment, urethane, oil paint, papers, graphite and found materials. My work can incorporate inspirational object imagery. I attempt to solve visual puzzles using custom mixed paint colors, defining fluidity and levels of transparency. Layers build in the creative moment, maturing a composition. Using my experience of a lifetime of seeing = my "toolbox of skill", and luck, my work evolves instinctively. The congruous results resourcefully fill a void and may be useful to others. I have no agenda but to follow what my eye tells me is interesting.
