The next painting will be the best. It has been an ongoing struggle for perfection – being able to break through mental and physical barriers, pushing the envelope to realizing and developing that vision until ultimately a style is born. Then taking that style and working it until it cannot be developed further and only then moving on to adapt this to new ideas, taking you on a journey of versatility and determination to the next painting.
I am always looking to improve on each work so as to fine tune my coordination between body, mind and spirit with emphasis on reaching the point whereby my hands almost are moving without consciously guiding them. Speed is an integral part of the process as it forces one to not dwell on exactitude rather it forces a continuous flow of inspiration and passion. My concept of painting is the journey of struggle and determination for perfection in every aspect of my work - from design and composition to color and form. A journey that never ends. Each style fits into a plan, like a road map to the future and sometimes the direction is not always forward, but like a continuous ebb and flow of juices which moves one, sometimes forwards and sometimes backwards but always towards a positive direction.
