Painting is what I do and I really can’t explain it or explain why.  I like to put paint on things.  I can’t help myself.

Many artists can cite influences or mentors.  I didn’t have any.  I respect anyone who’s tried to paint.  I may not like the painting, but I respect that someone had the passion and desire to paint.  I incorporate aspects of styles from other artist, but even then I adapt and change it to create my own style.  With little formal training, all I can do is absorb from others and learn through trial and error.

It’s taken a long time for me to be comfortable enough to show my work.  I’m not completely happy with it, just comfortable.  Maybe I never will be happy with my paintings, but as the saying goes, it’s the journey that counts.
