I would like to be a skilled
and consummate draftsman. I try to use a
collection of sensuous colors, often revealing mysterious hidden forms. I would love to convey the ability to see
between the figures, melding and infusing them into an environment of endless
nuances where abstraction and representational images are comfortable in the
same space and where passion and humanity resonate. Once I learn to do this well, I will be
obligated to pass this on, just as this information has been based on to
me. Thank God for our masters!
Ive learned that art is
making me, rather than me creating it.

in Boston, Massachusetts
and New London, Connecticut where he discovered his passion
for art. After serving an extended and traumatic tour of duty during the
Vietnam War, Goodnight returned to Boston
and began to pursue a career as an artist, first of all, as a way of seeking
self healing and balance. He received
his B.F.A and an honorary M.F.A from Massachusetts College of Art.
