I paint with acrylics because they're the most versatile painting medium available to date. I am captivated by the picture making process…by the adventure and anticipation of what will appear next from the combination of canvas and paint. I use a wide variety of mediums in a large range of consistencies, blended with my colors to make a palette of hundreds of mixtures of thick, thin, glossy, satiny, matte, smooth, coarse, chunky, translucent, iridescent, opaque paint mixtures. Color against color, surface against surface, the tension and compression of forms arranged within a defined space, sensitive manipulation and placement of paint and collage elements on a surface - this is the stuff of painting. Nothing else like it.
