My interest in abstraction has been with me since late student days. I sometimes break from working on my more figurative themes and focus on abstract work. This website group of paintings is selected from my latest abstract adventure.

The interplay, in the creation of a painting, between intellect and intuition has always intrigued me. The painting process in my abstract work is as entirely intuitive as I can make it .
I start a painting with an open mind and follow where the painting process takes me. The titles sometimes come to mind as I am in the final stages when the image begins to reveal the sub-conscious experiences that have begun to intuitively direct the creativity. At other times the titles are arrived at after the work is finished and is hanging in the studio or in the house where I can catch it in the corner of my eye as I pass by, thinking of other things.
