When I paint, I usually begin by creating a sky and then the land and then I wait and watch the scene until, almost like dreaming, images begin to form and characters appear from somewhere in my memory or imagination. I am probably more surprised and delighted than anyone when I see how the paintings develop. Other times, I begin with a character, usually women or children, and I paint until I have created a life around the character.
People have told me that they get a sense of joy looking at my work and that is what I feel when I work. I like to have a story like quality in my images as if something was just about to happen. I often cannot resist the compulsion to include a sense of whimsy.
