I am both an on-location and a studio painter and find that they complement and feed off each other. Whether in the studio or painting on location, the process is ultimately about the energy and the marks. These marks are the culmination of artists’ knowledge of craft and lifetime experiences. No matter the subject matter or whether the painting is loose or tight, we are creating at the most an illusion of the image. I feel that the greatest marks come when I have released my mind and analysis and simply let the immediacy of the moment come through. In the end a great painting emerges almost in spite of the painter and once finished, cannot be repeated.
