Images of the mind are impossible to tie down. They change the moment I begin to make marks on the painting surface. The marks themselves begin suggesting something else. The numbers (as titles) do not indicate the order in which the works were made. They serve as designations only. I believe that the use of numbers in place of titles should prevent the viewer searching for a subject.

Colour has been applied over many months and allowed to dry before over painting with semitransparent and opaque layers. Strangely, I find that that this lengthy process allows me to give the work a quality of spontaneity and freshness.
