My drawings begin with a continuous line from left to right. When the line leaves the page at the right edge I return to the line to find what I see beyond the line, people, animals, plants, houses or just more lines. Nothing is planned prior to doing the sketch. The colors are also unplanned with little conscious thought going in to what to color to use next, just as with the line. It's a from brain to hand to paper drawing. I am sometimes surprised at what I end up with. Frequently the same image appears, like the one labeled St. John's Cross which is a line I stared at on the Sundays I went to mass with my father at a Catholic Church in my home town, St. John's. Understanding nothing of the mass, I stared at the stained glass windows and this particular design fascinated me because it had no beginning or end. My favorite is the drawing opposite the cross which when finished I realized looks like either the front of St. John's church or an old time radio we had in our house. Many times the line just produces more lines and scribbles.
