Line, design, and composition matter to me. I use layers of glazes to alter or brighten hues. The more I paint, the more I realize the importance of values and the appearance of light. I simplify, idealize ordinary subjects to reduce them to more graphic or whimsical images. And color, (the fun part!) I still don’t understand, maybe I never will. But paintings have minds of their own. They say “put yellow here, blue there…” And I do.
