In this high tech saturated, split-second age I find myself feeling fragmented at times so there is nothing more fulfilling than to spend time focusing on just one thing---the canvas in front of me. Creating a painting is a lengthy, challenging process of trial, error and experimentation in order to find the right coloration and creative spark. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but you are always in the process of learning and hopefully creating something of beauty or interest. When painting I am living in the moment----how often can one say that. The process calms the nerves by de-cluttering the mind and letting the heart and hand become the masters of the moment. Being a painter has been a life-affirming, inspirational, totally enriching, disciplining and usually mystifying endeavor. Putting acrylic paint on a brush or palette knife and watch it crush a canvas with intoxicating colors and eye-popping beauty can be a defining “eureka” moment in my life. It is amazing what the mind and heart can produce when let free to wonder over a canvas. I LOVE to paint.
