I paint people because I have always had a serious addiction to watching people. I try to get that feel in my paintings. As if I am just watching people doing everyday things in my work. I love the subtle ways that a single brush stroke can create such subtleties in facial expression. I spend most of my time on the face and hands. They tell the story or create an interesting pose.
I also love the process of evolution of the work as time goes. I love all the intentional decisions as well as the accidents that end up working and follow me into my next piece.
