"I paint nearly every day, and when not painting, I am gazing, studying or dreaming about it. Painting is all about color, freedom and problem solving. I thoroughly enjoy the abstract structure of all paintings.
"To me, the beginning structure is the most exciting part. Starting with one color, working my way to another, and ending with just the right note is a very satisfying, self-centered experience that I enjoy frequently. No other activity gives the fulfillment that painting does. It is a tightrope of never ending excitement."
