What moves my hand across the canvas, is that behind the face of nature, not the face itself.

Although I am self-taught and did not take up painting until my mid-twenties, my good fortune was that at that time, when I lived in Washington, DC, the Washington Color School was dominant. Jacob Kainen, Ken Noland, Howard Mehring, Tom Downing and Leon Berkowitz all lent their comments and support to what has become a great passion.
