Art is an adventure to me. I love art in every form. There are no boundaries. When I paint, it's as if I am writing a story on the canvas and the work takes on a life of itself. Creating variations of colors and scenes is an amazing experience. Sometimes, I will start a project; I think may go on forever. Then, all of a sudden, it's finished. It's complete! It's as if I became lost in the painting and the painting painted itself. I lose myself in my art. I can paint for hours and not realize the day has passed, night has come and gone, and I see the sun rising. It is always something different. I never tire of it.
Abstract art is unpredictable. Experimenting with different media is fascinating. I use the reactions of how they interact to create texture and depth to my work. Colors evoke moods. I feel the more brilliant the color, the more passionate and expressive the creation. When I have strong feelings about something good or bad, I use color to give emotion to the piece. I know when people view my art; the colors and scenes may be interpreted differently from my original intent. Occasionally, I go back and look through my portfolio. What I take from it a year or so later, may have changed entirely from the impetus that made me paint it. I guess how I look at things depends on where I am in my life. That is why I love art. Each time I go back and look at a piece, I find something different. We all change as we live our lives. With those changes, our perception changes also. I find art timeless. It changes with us!
