Abstract qualities in a composition are often more important to me than the subject itself.

Up until very recently my abstracts have grown out of sections of paintings where colours, shapes and textures have come together to create visual excitement in their own right. My stacked apples were probably where this began.

Then the request to paint a 5’ x 2’ abstract tempted me to apply a new approach and I let go of reality altogether and found it very liberating!
