In painting we are each individual in our expressive needs, our view of the world, our sense of what is beautiful.
These traits of character determine our choices of images and symbols, the important element of painting which cannot be taught.
The tools of painting, design, and technique can be formulated, and they become our vocabulary of painting.
It is through trial and through experimentation that we find the creative form which best suits our individual expressive needs.
In this search we are each an experiment of one.
