Light, color, pattern, form, nature, humanity. These are my areas of study. Every painting is an experiment into one or all of these areas. 
I am working on a series titled America The Beautiful. It started with members of my family and blossomed with my first iPhone. Being able to catch people unaware has made a huge difference in my work. Also using several pictures to make one perfect expression is a thrill. Even when creating political satire, to express my rage and outrage at the inhumanity of political leaders, definitely not part of the America The Beautiful series, I rely on multiple images to create one. 
The same method of using multiple photographs is used when working on landscapes or animals. I am not interested in what is actually there, but what I want to say about what is there.
