I love the idea of incorporating the many different tools and capabilities at my disposal, both traditional and technological into the making of imagery. The ever present push to evolve visually, and expand a variety of subjects into the future, also often reveals strong roots to the core interests and personal history from the past. That is possibly the best part of the process. I continue to concentrate on the human form with the figure, and portrait. Landscape, still life elements, and art history will always be involved. Also, photography that has always been an extremely important vehicle: constantly reveals itself as indispensible, an opportunity, and a vessel. There is a constant and ongoing pursuit for experimentation in color and light and the depiction of various or forms, situations, and places, either real or imaginary. With time, energy, and devotion, the elements can all come into place. I leave open any of the expanding possibilities to work on a variety of subjects, ideas, and works of many different types that will continue to propagate this vivid and fascinating journey.
