Painting is a challenge, it is becoming aware of what I see, think and feel. It is looking for a way to express my perception and portrayal of a reality that once impressed me… or what might impress me. Painting is a form, texture, structure, continuity and distinctiveness. All this can be shown in paintings, giving a space for all kinds of presentations.
