“ I like to paint in all forms and medium- oils, watercolors, temper…and I am always experimenting.  That is why most of my paintings wind up being ‘mixed medium’ as I am always combining various paints to get different effects.  In some cases, as with the color, I start putting some colors down and it just starts happening.  Art is like a journey.  You don’t always know what direction the painting is going to take you when you start out.  You might have an idea, but that idea evolves during the course of its creation.”
