I Loved to draw as a youngster. Introduced to painting in my mid twenties by a friend. Switched to acrylics eventually and found that I had no desire to create representational art. Fell head over heals into abstraction and that's the way it went over a lifetime with several periods where I drifted away from it. When I finally retired from a career in Telecommunications and Information Technology I rebooted my painting style and moved into what I am doing today, which is still evolving. My goal is to have fun with the process and hope that viewers will benefit from that. Each major painting that I do takes months to finish. I don't work on the painting all of the time during this period. I probably average 200 hours actual painting time per painting. An important part of the process for me (part of the fun) happens during the time when I'm not actually painting. Ideas occur to me during those times and eventually get on the canvas.
