i paint because i have a case of ‘the feels.’ i either feel a nudge or hear a whisper or wake from a dream so vivid i MUST get my hands covered in paint and move them over the tight woven threads of a canvas.'
i get a case of the 'feels' once a vision arrives via a dream. i, knowing all too well, realized these ‘feels’ don't just go away. i have to paint them out. whatever IT is.
i honor these 'feels' and bring to fruition the images that are in mind's eye. typically, brilliant, vivid images. i am hopeful the breadth of color brings to the future viewer: light, peace, joy, mercy, compassion, a distraction... and love. always love.
