For me, if a subject is interesting and I feel I can make a good painting from it, then I will paint it. I have no lofty or grand purpose for my painting other than I really enjoy doing it. If someone else finds something moving or beautiful about the piece, then I am rewarded twice. My work seems to gravitate towards simple subjects such as cars, landscapes, or people doing nothing in particular. In something simple, I can usually find some order or pattern that is interesting to me. My paintings are a language for expressing and giving concreteness to my way of seeing things.
