Discovering numerous freight cars as a source for creating images that would appear as
paintings, led me to move in close to the surface and make intuitive compositions that satisfied my
intention.  The kind of illusionary paintings  had s
earched for began to appear.  Bringing
together stressed and rusted metal with colors of paint, abstracting both elements from any
information of a surrounding reality, created the illusion of seeing the images in their entirety, as
two dimensional paintings.  If you allow yourself the freedom of not naming what you see, but
rather staying in the moment of contemplation, letting the image reach you without  judgement,
you can see what I mean.
