I envied that as a kid, but I didn’t have much of a talent for drawing. When I was 17, I read a copy of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and started drawing photographs upside-down. It worked for me, and by the time I got to college I kept a sketchbook and enjoyed working on paper, and then in watercolor and acrylic. Most of those works from the 1970s and 1980s are lost, and I’ve only returned to paper and canvas sporadically. Since I’m more interested in trying new things than developing a style, my paintings vary widely and none demonstrate real application to a technique. As in all my work, I think the unifying factor is color, which is central to my photographic and digital post-processing and digital painting technique.
