When I start to paint, I go directly to the canvas.  I have no sketches or photographs to refer to.  I listen to music; sometimes to remove me from the conscious activity of painting and at other times to help me focus on what's developing in front of me. I'm not at all interested in capturing the likeness of an individual or portraying the human figure accurately, but in conveying the mystery and transience of the human condition - making the invisible, visible.
