What makes me want to paint what I paint is the light – specific light on specific things. But I also like to make well balanced compositions. So my paintings aren’t spontaneous responses – I spend time arranging them and painting them. And I don’t want to pursue style or technique that might obscure what I’m interested in – I just want to show as clearly as I can what I saw when that particular subject was in that particular light
