Painting is human beings' direct access to magic.  The artist is granted the privilege of releasing his inner being with each stroke, while the viewer is granted access to a separate reality each time he looks upon the painter's work.  Georgia O'Keefe called this "making your unknown known".  I call it "embracing the unexpected".  The purpose of art is to cause thought; as I approach a canvas I am ever mindful of the rare freedom and responsibility to  share my unknown.
