I get messages.  You get messages.  We all get messages!!

There are all kinds - Simple Messages, Baby Messages, Messages in the Sky, Messages in the Water.  There are Loud Messages, there are Mixed Messages.

When I start a painting very often I first write into the gesso as it dries to sort of start the process.  What happened was that the writing came forward in this MESSAGE COLLECTION.  These paintings are comprised of many layers of the writing, one on top of the other to create THE message.
