A few thoughts as told by the Artist
I was born to be an artist! I can not remember a time when I wasn't interested in creating art. My grandmother once told me so many years ago in my childhood that I was an "Artist." That thoughtful moment perhaps changed my life. Or maybe it confirmed what I already knew instinctively. Being a truly creative individual is a continued exploration of the world around us. It doesn't stop. So many difficulties to overcome. So many joyful moments. Part of the quest is just still searching, exploring, experimenting, and trying to achieve something intangible. Trying to achieve something totally magical, and when it is achieved it seems like it happens effortlessly. Forget all the hard work, pain, studying, and endless analyzing, it just seems to flow and it is so sweet when it happens and you are captured by that particular moment, only to realize that it is in that moment that defines ones sense of self. Thanks Grandma.
About my art...I paint what I love and what I know, what is around me and my surroundings. I feel the energy of the subject, the moment and time. That energy stays with the painting. One can feel it! Some visitors feel it the moment they come into the gallery. It hits them head on...they smile, grin, and tears of joy just happen. It still amazes me when that happens. Sometimes my art is healing and heals people, or gives them peace. It's a healing energy process that is put into the work while I am creating it.
Purchasing Fine Art is an art in itself. Do you see something you like? Something that speaks to you? Follow your own heart and purchase that artwork in confidence with your own taste. Empower yourself and surround yourself with the art you love!
