 I like to think and reinterpret most things I see and hear in life and apply it to my paintings. Psychologically, I appreciate the work of Alfred Hitchcock and the way he used the camera lens to allow the viewer to interpret his own thoughts and views of what may or may not have happened. He had confidence in the viewer to think for himself, I do too.
