Close observation is a kind of daily meditation. Lets look at beautiful thingsluminous flowers, the glitter of glass, opulent fabrics, a landscape lit just so. As with our lives, these effects are ephemeral and in my paintings I try to isolate them, give them form, really see the color, the shapes, notice how the light reflects on a surface, how a shadow becomes another object. I often exaggerate color and contrast in my paintings to try to give shape to what my inner eye is seeing. I often push the scale, also, to something beyond reality. Heightened color, bigger-than-life scale, dramatic lighting and high contrast are some of the tools I use.
