At 76 I take stock of following my own path for over 50 years of painting privately and without fanfare.

Technical idée fixe occur throughout; Variations either in series Ossias for Dancing is my most complete exploration of that, or within a painting Song to the Dancer II. Text most completely in La Lecture or fluidly in Pohádka 8. Landscape as a starting point as in Echoing Paths or paintings in their own right. Persistently I use number permutations Eye Music being the earliest Small Mechanisms the most outré and European Pastorals the most accomplished. 

Much of this shows the influence of music and how it is structured which is central to so much of what I do.

 Behind this it is hard to verbalise the thoughts I struggle with. Therefore I work quietly, slowly and with much hesitation to open up to you and myself those fleeting ideas.

Give it time and it might grow to like you!
