These paintings start with the image of a portal which is a dominant motif. They often evolve over a period of several years reflecting upon the passage of time. I may paint over old paintings leaving some parts exposed because it goes with my attitude toward life; that we become the accumulation of all we have experienced. This painting process is one of covering, scraping and redrawing in order to challenge the existing state of the work to leave evidence of what went before in the process of creating a rich and textured history of thought.
