There is a reason why our senses are stimulated
by an image of an open road winding out in front of us. We want to be there, we want to transport away from our current location.
But never do I doubt that God is leading us and wanting us to keep moving. Motion, that is what I crave. Paintings
are a visual challenge for my heart. I want to dialogue with them. I must find the best words. Words is what I will explore. Phrases that have universal power, much like the image of a open street. Symbols and
expression that will join me with my viewer and we can process the journey together. I have always thought that I do city
scenes because people like them and I like being liked. But I do think there is a more important reason. When I started doing
these images it was 2005 and I didn’t just represent. I added text and meaning to the image. Images mean something,
it’s a powerful communication. I might not be the best with words, I struggle to combine the best phrases and feel I
babble sometimes. But I find the communication of images is a language that I speak. Even in grey, transitional times of life, the colors I find are mostly close to my heart. I have enjoyed
taking tubes of paint out and creating a new destination. I will communicate and continue to move.
