- I don’t want to stop making. So I make. I suppose I could quit any time I wanted, I guess.
For that reason I keep a journal. I have an “idea” table just for “what-ifs”. I take pictures of constructions for reference. I made a small backpack for art materials.
- I can create by my own will, on command, except sometimes I don’t do so well.
So, I keep an everyday carry collection of sketch books, idea books, and finish books plus a small selection of pens, brushes, pencils, and colors.
- I see the world in terms of light, shadow, form, flow, and composition.
For example, with light and shadows I work on getting folds of fabric plausible or to show the muted hues of an alley.
I like to catch the early morning light and the twilight.
- I reflexively decide what something could “be” if I change some things.
So, I combine objects and create 3-D sculptures on wooden panels. I use items I have owned and mix them with junk from my stash mashing, and melding.
- I mostly work alone
But I am always telling a story.
