There are potential paintings around us all the time.  If we close our eyes and let the images float by, we could grab any one of a number of those images and call it a painting.  With our eyes open, anywhere that we are, it’s likely that we could find an interesting painting if we just looked at something, found an intriguing angle and put a frame around it.  In my paintings I like to pretend that I’m putting a frame around one of those images that we see with our eyes closed, or at least I like to use it as an inspiration.  Kurt Tazelaar
