Art is everywhere! It envelops us! It is energizing! It is the quintessential expression of our world.
I see it! I breathe it! I touch it! I live it!!
For me, color emanates from all subject matter, whether live or inanimate. Nothing is ever static!
The reality is not what I'm after. It is the never ending vitality in all things.
And so, in my world, an abundance of color is essential, and violating "the rules" is part of the adventure.
I never anticipate the finality of a canvas, as I don't necessarily continue in the direction in which I begin.
For me, each canvas is an emotional journey into which I am totally invested.
