ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

After I painted (Perfect Pear), (image below) I grew a sense of desire to explore 
go into various types of abstract (The Dawn of More) / (image below) yet came to the position that to me abstract is to create color balance, to orchestrate in a manner that 
all the colors sing. So that is where my artistic sensibilities are today. 
When I start a work, I still start on Baltic Birch Plywood because I enjoy immediate
Brush response and cover with a layer of Fine Belgium Linen then adhere with
Rabbit Skin Glue Gesso. I do this because I know that Rembrandt did the same 
approach however he used Lead White to bring the canvas to white. Then I am
assured of following the laws of permanence. 
I also use only the finest of pigments, Old Holland, Winsor Newton, Holbein and so forth. 
That to me is beauty, to get off with a running start that I have adhered to the laws and 
all I do assures permanence.
