"My goal in painting is to combine the French academic tradition of fine draftsmanship with the lovely observed color of objects influenced by natural light as perfected by the impressionists. There is no reason for muddy or grey coloring. The beautiful subtleties of color in nature deserve to be rendered faithfully. These color variations in painting make the difference between a good painting and an excellent one.  As well as lovely coloring, good pictorial design is a must in every painting whether it is a still life or landscape. Good design is a fundamental of painting  just as much as strong value contrast of light to dark to create a complete work of art. To me, Johannes Vermeer's paintings are the perfection of this ideal."
