Over the years as I developed and experimented with various media, painting was one area that gave me great satisfaction. I used my graphic design sensibilities and in most cases I designed and arranged my paintings as I would any other design project. I would first do drawings in color then put on the canvas what I felt I wanted. Most of the time the painting would take on a life of its own and grow in the direction I felt the size, shapes and colors would take me. I like working in layers creating a sense of dimension and mystery. All the paintings shown are in acrylic except for "Rabbit, Rabbit" which is in oil.
