For private viewing:

The urge to draw, every day if possible, is a compulsion common to many artists. I have drawn very regularly since childhood, doubtless as a way of maintaining some perceptual grip on the outside world. Though my painting is abstract, I have retained the habit of drawing from life. I try to achieve some sort of graphic, arguably “abstract,” image without forfeiting the observation of reality. Articulation – how things or their parts (human joints, tree branches, building elements, etc.) meet and act in concert tends to claim my attention.
