When you paint there is an initial stroke which can be dynamic and exciting- like the early beginnings of a love story. During the painting process loss of this dynamism often occurs.These paintings attempt to maintain the movement with the flow of that intial stroke whilst making its own statement. Allowing its unique subject to maintain a coherance. 

The routine process which we must adhere to as we age can be mistaken for over-indulgence within a certain activity. Painting, writing, producing something creative is akin to the addicts drug. There is a compulsion or force pushing forward; often confused with necessity. You cannot slip its manly grasp.
