These mixed media paintings are improvisational explorations with textural elements on the surface or layered into the paint. They are a fusion of painting and collage and true improvisations because there is no preliminary sketch. The composition emerges from using charcoal like one might create a spontaneous dance, only I do this on canvas and not in  three-dimensional space time. Why I do this–I am interested in releasing images accumulated and stored in my sense memory from a lifetime of seeing.  This is more interesting to me right now than working from a perceptual moment in time. I find it exciting and wondrous to see what will emerge.
