ARTIST STATEMENT
"At one time or another, all of us have experienced a paralyzing fear that prevented us from moving forward with our lives. Fear of failure and fear of ridicule can be a prison that we create for ourselves. The exhilaration of Breaking Free of the bonds that stifle our creativity is what the BREAKING FREE SERIES explores. Horses on the run are powerful reminders of that adrenaline rush of freedom we feel when breaking through barriers that hold us back from our true potential. It is never too late to find that power within us to Break Free."

METHODS

"To create the paintings I make an acrylic sculpting product with acrylic resin and marble dust which is applied with a palette knife to the image to create a three dimensional relief, then acrylic washes are applied in a very loose watercolor style. The images are acrylic on canvas 36" X 48" to 48" X 72" and have tremendous impact with the dark brown background. Everyone comments on the sense of movement, and little explanation is needed about the feeling of freedom. Viewers are encouraged to touch the canvas to examine the sculpted image.

I truly hope everyone will find the courage to Break Free.
