Painting checks a lot of joy boxes for me:

  1. squishing the buttery texture of paint around
  2. visually recreating what is lovely to me
  3. contrast of value and color
  4. freedom and discipline (yes, they go together)
  5. expression  –both private and public
  6. losing myself in a challenge
  7. creating physical proof that I did something


It’s a response to the above that causes me to paint a wide variety of subjects in a variety of styles.  I’m working towards impressionism in most of my paintings.

I’ve been painting regularly only since 2013, so I have a long way to go to really find out how to say what I want to say with paint.
