Harlequin Dance for the Doge
I have been compulsively making pictures for sixty three years now, and my zeal is unabated! My work is multifaceted and I am interested in many aspects of the creation of visual images.
Over the years this diversity of ideas and subject matter has resolved itself into the identification of different "themes" in my working process - different starting points, different final aims.
I work on an individual theme for as long as the creative flow is alive or until the activity is interrupted by life's events and personal circumstances. After the interruption I will often return to a previous theme which will, in turn, follow it's own unpredictable time scale.
My Venice theme has continued for many years and has involved many visits to that glorious city in the lagoon. The early representational paintings have, since my wife died, become more subjectively abstract recalling the wonderful experiences we had in Seranisimo.
