...look at the painting in terms of individual colors. In other words, instead of simply glancing at the work, select a specific color such as yellow or a lime green, and take the time to see how it operates across the painting. Approached this way, something happens, I can't explain it. But one must enter the painting through the door of a single color. And then, you can understand what my painting is all about.
