I paint things. Sometimes it is hard to choose what to paint–sometimes it is not. I often will paint something because it will be difficult to capture. When challenged by a subject I'm not sure how I will capture I am often surprised with the out come. When I paint it is a lot like solving a puzzle, as I put the spots of color in place it is easy to equate it to finding a jigsaw pieces fitting together. I like working from life, having the subject in front of me. It's the equivalent to the picture on the box top in 3-D.
