ARTIST'S STATEMENT

When I discovered the palette knife I dove into painting large colorful canvases with thick layers of oil paint. For me the knife is not just a tool, it is the key to unlock my creative freedom. I started painting seriously in 2003. I was 60 years old. Not to say that my 35 year career as a television producer was all for naught—it taught me a lot about light, contrast, composition, point of view, negative/positive spaces. When I paint I think about what it was that first caught my eye—what made me want to paint that particular scene or that object and I try to paint it in a way that will catch the viewer’s eye too and invite him/her to be there with me. Usually its the light–-how it hits a building, a landscape, or an object, and the shadows that are created. I squint a lot. I paint fast. I love the spontaneity of the knife. I love the accidents. I love no brushes to wash.
