"I paint realism as I feel it…I paint in acrylic on a prepared hardboard panel. I begin by establishing the composition, color relationships and values. Excitement grows in the refinement process, working from dark to light, positive to negative and from chaos to simplicity. What is it that drives me into the studio? Inspiration, passion and guilt. Making art is, for me, an escape into reality." - Judy Greff
