The inspiration for these works is two-fold. I have long been an appreciator of the watercolorists’ ability to layer transparent washes of color. By using and mixing powered glass I found that it was possible to create a like effect on glass.

Also it was possible to create an amorphous atmosphere where images appear from implied surroundings; the second inspiration for these powder paintings. Our human perception of the reality in which we live is modified by our personal perspective. In other words, what you see and remember is not necessarily what anyone else sees and remembers. That vagueness is represented in these powder paintings in terms of color.

"The eye sees more clearly in dreams than the imagination awake." —Leonardo da Vinci
