The world, to me, is a sumptuous banquet of colors, smells and experiences. Anything that I draw or paint is really just my attempt at an interpretation of the rich and overwhelming layers of beauty that I see everywhere. I love, love, love color! There is far too much white in the halls of our everyday lives. In nature, white is reserved for small things… eggs, a few flowers, the tuft of a deer’s tail…. or the blanket of snow which pleasures us shortly and then melts into spring. Color can bring joy or sorrow, can express our inmost feelings. I adore the details of things and I love to paint the hairs on a fox’s nose or the glisten of an alert eye. Art is sharing what I see with others; art is a reflection of the soul. It is what I am compelled to do. Sola deo Gloria!
