There is nothing in my background that I can think has any influence on my art. I have a wife. I have two sons and their children. My wife has relatives and all are very dear to me.
My painting has changed. In my eyes the change has been like evolution, survival of the fittest. When I lay out my paintings I can see a thread of small changes progressing to the latest pictures I am working on today. In practice the changes have not been small but involving a lot of research and calculation. But hopefully they will speak for themselves.
