Excerpt from MAKING THE ART SEEN, artSPACE@16 Online Gallery interview:

“These paintings were called “sleepers” because they were soft, quiet works until the light source changed and then they would come to life.  I wanted to create work with subtle changes in the color in order to intensify a sense of light and open space.  The layers were many but limited in chroma and painted with a matte finish so that the wood-grain was only somewhat evident, I needed the calm that enveloped me when I painted in only vertical and horizontal brush strokes. It was a softer, quieter dialogue of shifting color, shifting space….”
