Making art takes me to another dimension; colors come forward and retreat, shadows define shapes, light changes from moment to moment. When chasing these elusive elements, time seems to disappear. Each phase of marks to make, tools to choose and decisions to ponder brings its own special frustrations and delights. Finding a vision for a non-representational piece requires a different kind of thinking that provides special challenges. When the piece is finally finished, the feeling is like a little celebration of what makes life rich and fulfilling.
