"I saw the angel in te marble and carved until I set him free" -Michelangelo
I dont necessarily see the angel in the canvas, rather I feel it. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genera, I developed a way to sculpt, define, &build volume with paint, layer by layer. creating a beautifyl play of light and shadow, filled with unexpected colors side by side. It's a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find my wildlife subjects to have soulful eyes, and once I become mesmerized, the painting is complete.There is a large zen element in my approach to painting. Each time I step up to my canvas to paint, I step up as I am in the moment, what I painted yesterday does not matter. To learn to connect and to flow whith what I am painting in the moment, yet to still be able to be objective. Enabling me to push the boundaries of what into is possible with layers, color, texture, brush movement, and size. I find such a sense of peace in my creative pursuits; art is a way of life.
