    With my work I am continuing my search for art which is not aimed at depicting particular objects but, rather, compositions searching to bring both an intellectual and spiritual inspiration to the canvas.  The focus of my current work is on the internal structure of my thoughts and feelings, as I move far from the edge, the boundary, and the surface into the vast interior.

      I ordinarily paint to the sound of music playing. As a painter I see and hear a bridge between the beauty of music and that of abstract art.  When I paint I almost always feel a beat, a rhythm in what I am painting. Often a melody as well.  As I paint I feel lifted, and lyrical.  I think the variety of form, color, and content in my work reflects that I hear and feel what I paint. 

       I am developing a body of melodic abstractions.  Therefore, I have titled some of my abstracts musically.  Primarily, I leave the interpretation of this art, and the journey into it, to the viewer, believing that each person views art in his or her own way; however, the musical titles may be a nudge onto the bridge. I believe abstract art lends itself so magnificently to every expression of life, and to an appreciation by the viewer, who comes to it with all of the accumulation of her or his own life experiences.  In the melody of modern abstract art, s/he may see, and hear, emotional content - pathos, joy, fury, forgiveness, betrayal, love.  My vision is to create the peace that comes from finding that relationship with abstract painting which is borne of recognition, catharsis and, finally, solace.
