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.

The issue with many pieces that were destroyed in the process was that something figurative kept intervening when I didn’t want it. Here at last, I defeated that intervention. So this, and a couple of others not shown here, are, what I would call, victories.
