"The colors that I'm working with now are basically the colors that I'm left with after avoiding having my color choices look like any other painter that has come before me. It's almost as if I don't have to choose because I'm just basing my palette on whatever's left over. This idea plays the largest role in choice of palette for me. There are ways that I technically avoid the dilemma of having my palette look like other painters. I mix colors that don't go together. I tend to tint all of my cobalt and "truer" colors with different blacks or burnt umber, or I tint with any color that I feel can disturb the trueness of another color. Beyond that I use a combination of unconventional mediums and ratios of quality to cheap paint. If anything, I'd like my palette to reflect the haphazard, the institutional, and the random pedestrian sense of the urban landscape. I look at a lot of faded graffiti."
