'My inspiration to paint comes from the possibility of what could be. For me, the painting process differs from music because of the solitude involved. It starts and stops when I decide. The similarity is the way I'm influenced. With music, it's the sonics that influence me. A tone can spark a whole song. With painting, it's the color and textures that influence me. I layer on the paint and as the textures develop, the painting takes shape. The general relationship is different because of the number of senses used. With guitar it's my ear that dictates the song and moves me. With painting it's the feel of the paint, the feel of the brush in your hands, the smell of the paint and the depth of what I'm seeing. Music is much more ethereal' ~ Rich Robinson, Paste Magazine
