             Since a youngster, I always was able to draw. However, it was not until some twenty years ago that I jumped into the world of color and canvas and, since I started in oils, I have found I prefer them for nearly all my work.

             Everything is grist for the mill because I find everything so unbelievably interesting. Subjects and styles, all had to be tried until the impressionists staked a claim to being my favorites. I enjoy this looseness because it allows more of one’s self to come through. This in turn led me to abstractions. In abstraction, I find that the worlds of colors, shapes and forms simply pour out of me and I enjoy “letting go” more than anything else.

             But a single abstract painting is rarely enough. I often find that the idea, which leads me to paint, cannot be fully expressed in a single work. This has led me paint in series. I now have two major series of fourteen paintings each. One is titled ‘Norse Mythology’, and the other, ‘The Boston Documents’. I have started a series on Las Vegas, in reality form, and I have other themes in mind.

             Another thing I discovered was that I enjoyed working with solid articles as well. I began gluing anything that was not standing still, onto my canvases. This work, raised collage is probably the best way to describe it, of necessity, is abstract.

             Finally, I bought a computer; which has unbelievably distracted me. This modern, frustrating marvel has led me into the world of fractals and Photoshop and has put many things on hold. A whole new world which seems to have no end, has opened to me.*** 

            This may seem to be the last step in a long evolution, but it is really only another rung for me in the exciting world of art. Free standing sculptures appear to be next. We shall see. However, I do not forget my roots. I have, and always will, enjoy flowing oils across canvas and doing, from time to time, all those other marvelous works which have led me to this day.
