Painting is central to my existence.  I’ve reached a time in my life where I am confident that whatever the distractions I will continue to paint.  Though I can rationalise what I do and why, it goes far deeper than any explanation I can give.  However, there are few patterns I can see in myself, for instance, the need to challenge myself; I am not satisfied by the mundane or wanting to repeat what I do just because it demonstrates a level of competence.  This challenge goes beyond what I do and moves into how I challenge the viewer.
