Even after years and years of practice, every painting feels like a fresh puzzle to me. I’m currently puzzling around with how light and dark build form and space, and how forms end and merge into the spaces around them. I work realistically but that does not mean I always tell the truth.
I retired recently from 35 years of research and evaluation. Art and science both require a commitment to curiosity and problem solving and a joyous acceptance of failure as a learning tool.
