Do I have to explain why I make pictures this way? Does it matter any more that I work both digitally and with real paint? Well, I used to worry about this, and published a book on the subject. Put software and the painting process together and you have a wonderful mix: you blend and twist geometry, you orchestrate colour however you like, throw photos in, dream up patterns, make endless changes without disturbing the surface. But perhaps it isnít so different - no more than whether a novelist uses a Bic or Word. Your subject matter, your obsessions, your imagination remain the same - and so do your limitations. In my case every now and then I get back to pigeons, and then I get back to playing around with shapes, colour, light and movement.
