Making art is a complicated process. An artist can be involved in concerns about composition, messaging, commercial potential, the cost of materials, or any of a number of considerations.
I make art because it gives me pleasure. I don’t always know where I’m going with it, or what it will ultimately communicate to the viewer, but it’s something I do. I walk for pleasure through my papers and paint, without a definite route and if I make that connection through the art with someone else, all the better.
