I just like doing what I do, really its that simple, I just enjoy painting
I just like art and I'm not trying to change the world or invade your consciousness.
Well OK if I'm forced to be serious........ I love color, I have this theory that people treat color like its special occasion piece of crockery, just brought out to admire and then shut away. No!!!!! lets have balloons everyday say. I like substance over form, Picasso, Lichtenstein, Klimt, Mueck (Mueck is a genius) Mondrian, this list goes on...........I love the process of painting, I love the whole flights of fancy thing. I love that its subjective and one mans soup can is an others etc.......
Texture fascinates me, always has, have you ever really looked closely at a piece of sandpaper? Love stone walls and pebbles in rock pools, bark is great stuff. Covers of old books are neat and so are polished wood floors, its amazing how just texture can be good enough to be the star of the show in its own right.
