"My paintings often have their genesis in a walk somewhere that resonates powerfully for me. This is usually nature, but could be urban and definitely includes visits to art museums. Walking in these magical places feels like a celebration of being alive, being in a body in this marvelous world of creation. As I will stop as forms begin to interest me, begin to suggest a nascent meaning and essential order. It could be the spikiness of deadfall, the strangeness of a bark pattern, rocks that tumble or pile in a rhythmic dynamic, the pull of a trail moving through wilds, or sometimes the presence of an animal, bird or birds that bring my attention to a particular location. Willie Kohler
