“This quiet, pandemic time has given me an opportunity to take stock of my work so far. I featured all my drawings in a previous book titled INK and this book collects my best paintings over the many years. The process has been instructional for me in terms of evaluating my work. Also, there was great pleasure remembering every painting and location. It brings it all back in a way that is almost mystical. I started this journey in 1975 and I never stopped trying new ideas and approaches, but always without device, without guile, just trying. I think you will enjoy this trip in oil paint across the years, across the world.”
