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.

During the many days working on one image there are innumerable changes to the illusive image. There are also innumerable changes to my own mood and experiences. There are positive days and more negative ones. Even during the negative days the work goes on, and can often be stronger than work made during a positive period.
