As with many artists, I value highly the accidental or serendipitous event; that instant when a fluttering red leaf becomes a red bird; that moment when a line of poetry creates a tingling sensation like champagne bubbles in the brain. And so it is with my abstractions. I have recently enjoyed most of all working in the abstract. All the clutter of content is removed and I am delighted working with line, color and form; moving them about until an association occurs that I cannot ignore, then I have found that moment of poetry.
Doing art is its own reward. I am a happy man. I am in love with colors. Colors and color combinations delight the eye. Working with colors causes tremendous sensual pleasure. I am glad to be alive and that I have two good eyes to see.
