Never forgetting, whether it's abstract expressionist or super realism, color defines form. I feel I've always leaned towards an experiment with abstraction in a representational form. Trees don't exist on the paper. There is no sunlight. It's all about color. George Inness knew this as much as Mark Rothko. And the subject matter is really unimportant in that context. As Fairfield Porter said, "Subject matter must be neutral in a sense that it does not appear sought after so much as simply happening to me." I don't need grandiose sunsets. A passing glance into the forest or a glimpse down the road ahead is enough.
