This question I heard it repeatedly, and even today I
can not answer. All simply because the work of a
painting always starts well before touching the canvas.
often I work outdoors in oils with a pallet knife. But
the starting point of a painting can also be a sketch
made from nature and then the painting itself guides me.
never run out of subjects, but seldom is there enough
time to express all of what I feel.
everything, in every image or situation, abides a
"conventional" reality that everyone can see, and
another reality, not less true, but more discreet - less
visible at first sight. It is this other reality which
belongs to the "dreamscape" and allows expression of
feeling, unspokenness, and other profoundly human
things. It is that I try to capture and project with my
own sensibility in my paintings.
