I hope you find the painting that touches you as I have been touched during the creative process. I believe that painting is the mirror to our deepest feelings, the window to our souls, and the opportunity to create beauty out of nothing.
Art soothes and comforts us and opens our eyes and hearts to the beauties, wonders, and passions of life. It is a privilege for me to sit in the comfort of my studio, listening to joyful music I love, and just paint. As the creative process begins I often have no idea where to start or what direction and journey the colors will take me. I just start painting, feel it, as the colors fall about and onto my pallet.
This process is a place for my personal growth. When the painting momentarily looses its innate joy or I find myself becoming too attached or controlling I step back, allow the project its space and natural flow and evolution. This is a metaphor I use in my life, remembering to quiet the noise, relinquish the need to control, and trust the ebb and flow of life as I trust the ebb and flow of the evolving painting.
