"The painting journey itself is a profound joy. I explore in pure feel of happy moods..the painting is of itself, not outside objects or views. I speak from Inner Light to improve the well being of viewers, with a sense of freedom and energy in Feel. This is Abstract Expressionist work that started strongly in 1909-10 with Wassily Kandinsky, followed by many more. My current work is in the realm and reference of Sam Francis, Sam Gilliam, Jackson Pollock, Jonas Gerard, and Joan Mitchell, first and foremost, with further reference to Franz Kline, Hans Hoffman, Robert Motherwell, Larry Poons, Paul Jenkins, Robert Rauschenberg, Clyford Still, Gregory Deane, Willem DeKooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, and Cy Twombley."
