Starting a new painting is like biting into a luscious apple.I hesitate, but can’t resist dipping my brush in delectable colors.

In an instant, I find myself swept away to a place called Imagination.

The creation of my art has many steps.

A wooden board is cut to the specified size, coated with Gesso and sanded. This process is repeated a number of times until the board has a completely smooth surface.

Color comes first. Using soft sable brushes and oil paints, I apply broad strokes of oil paints to the board. When I am done, it looks like an abstract painting, full of sporadic color and movement. This serves as my background.

After the first coat has dried, I stare at it. A new layer is applied; images come to life. Symbolic stories are created.

Completing a painting takes anywhere from a single month to several years.

Once dry, the completed painting is varnished to protect and enhance the colors.

A painting is finished when it feels right. I just know it. I sign it and never touch it again.
