"Lately, I've been focusing on simplification-- trying to break down complicated structures into simple shapes, using a simple palette of the three primary colors, concentrating on just one form: one rose, one boat, etc. However, I continue to find changing the style of painting stimulating and usually follow a tight, detailed painting with one that is freer where the paint controls where I go rather than the other way around. Lately, I've been experimenting with painting on my iPad, not as a replacement for traditional media, but as another way to express ones' self. I find it freeing and a lot of fun. And it has the advantage of being able to be printed inexpensively."
