     Every time I have set goals in my art in a sense I lose some ability.  Successful images that I have done have evolved from simply how I feel about the subject matter which I believe and which I first read as a quote by Andrew Wyeth.  So in a sense the image may be already finished before I start.  Its success in me is almost of a spiritual nature.  That is how I view my creative process.  I was raised traditionally and my art particularly in photography in the early 1990's reflects an adherence to traditional perspective and composition, having been inspired by Italian Renaissance art.  That inspiration has given way to a greater desire to be more mystical in what I portray.
