I always loved looking at other artist’s work and the images that made me stop and look, and wondered if I could ever do that. I remember one particular painting by Ken Jackson, London Ontario, that I had seen and that painting stayed with me over 8 years before I finally bought a print for myself and hung it over my office desk. I remember Ken telling me that when you see a painting and it ‘speaks’ to you, you won’t forget it. For me, that was true. I would like to inspire that in others who look at my paintings.
