In my opinion, the eye is the artist's greatest asset. One may be born with the talent for reproducing what one sees or a gift for designing and producing beautiful colors, but talent, though most important is not enough. The eye must be developed so the artist can know what is good and what is original. The only way to develop the eye is to look, to look, and to look. The need for looking at the best works of art is probably the reason most artists try to live in cities with great museums. Although, I have painted both abstractly and realistically, I consider my abstract paintings to be my most original paintings. My aim is to paint works with beautiful color and interesting design that has not been seen. For me, painting is like play because like play, my painting is inventive. It gives me the greatest pleasure to produce a beautiful painting.
