“Abstraction is real, probably more real than nature.” —Josef Albers

My paintings begin with a graphite line drawing, usually on a panel.

Choosing colors is an improvisation, a method that has kept and intensified my interest over forty years of painting. At one stage, I abandon the ruler for my eye. The pleasure is in finding precise intervals of color and hue that move my eye around the work, never letting it rest too long in one place.
