     I try to capture the character of the subject I want to paint.  I have found the rhythm and delicacy of black butterflies moving through the reeds of bamboo; cannas against dark leaves of distant trees; and the table richly covered with silver platters or wooden bowls, flowers, fruits, vegetables.  I love drawing in wet paint, then moving to a black and white, or to a playfully painted object.
