Every painting I’ve been fortunate to create has enlightened me about something. Either the medium I’m using, the painting surface, the brushes, the theme, myself or the lovely people that view them. Over the years, I have come to embrace this experience, realizing that the application is a marvelous part of the process. Just painting can be enjoyable, but the feeling you get when the paint, the environment and the process speaks to you is unparalleled–unraveling the many questions that surface when painting in a certain medium, or trying to communicate a subject. I am confident that when you allow this process to occur, not only does your eye mature, but you grow as well.
