I like to make things. Paintings, sculptures, woodworking projects in my shop, boats, I built my own house, etc. Many of my paintings are concerned with time and how by looking at the same thing over and over again, I continue to see more and more. It is an old idea that appeals to me. I have been studying the same view for 25 years. I lived upstairs in the Brooklyn Box building for 8 years in the 1980s as well as sharing a studio in the building for a year in 2010, and have made some paintings that are specific to that place.
