I was once asked on a message board WHY DO YOU PAINT?.

I paint because I like the feel of the loaded brush moving over the rough or smooth surface, I like to see the colors coming alive on the ground, I can only be filled with what I see so long and then have to get it out, and I want to have in my possession some of the things I see. Example the shiny folds made by light on a dark satin dress and the satisfaction that I painted that. When you see something and a brush stroke makes that exact same thing appear on the ground. And when that moment I get it right the AHAH Evangelical choir of angels singing after a long series of FAIL FAIL FAIL.
