In recent years my work often has come from my reading.
Words lead to ideas.
Sometimes a word or two will trigger the imagination enough to create a series.
I keep a note book for such words.
When I started out years ago, I relied on visual information to feed my work.
Now I begin with the idea, and generate sketches for my work.
My painting process is a process of addition and subtraction,
during which I try to edit the image down to only what is needed.
