It is simple. I have a need to be creative through painting in either the traditional way, or using electronic tools. Currently, as in the last ten years I have been painting cloudscapes with acrylics. In the last 3 to 4 years I have begun painting figures using oils. I do not have extremely insightful, or highly philosophical reasons or background explanations for my paintings, or the processes I go through. I see something I like, or get an idea and I paint and am a pleasant person. If I go long periods of time without painting…..I am not a very happy person. Simple.
