Paintings

Painting allows me to live a contemplative solitary life.  The construction of each image is a tortuous, overlong inquiry which requires my complete presence.  Infinite postulations, mostly unsuccessful potshots, final congeal.  I begin with a pile of photos and drawings, a nebulous notion and faithfully, stroke by stroke, row towards land.

As Lao Tse said, "I have just three things to teach, simplicity, patience and compassion, these are the greatest treasures."
