Artist Statement

My style of painting involves creating a complicated background of hundreds of grids of varying colors. When done the background I will closely look like the intended composition. From there I concentrate on adding detail to segments of the painting. This method allows me the most expression because different parts are all done at different times. For example, a typical landscape composition might have twenty different trees. Painting all the trees during the same session will tend to create too many similarities and thus a boring composition. Patience and time allows my paintings to reflect my varying emotions and moods and in a strange way create a sense of balance and harmony in what are often very detailed and confusing compositions.
