Painting is a moving meditation for me and I try to relax and hone my listening skills during the process. My process changes all the time, constantly evolving for each series, as I evolve. I paint a wide variety of subjects from my everyday life here in the Silicon Valley, things that capture my imagination, like patterns of shadows, bold fish, blooming roses. Noticing each subject freshly each time and wondering how to capture and interpret it in my current state of mind is the challenge. If it is true what they say that energy goes where your attention goes then my studio is a vortex of energy and ever changing joyful ideas.
