Painting one’s life is like telling a story through paint. As life emerges through channels of color the awareness of its origin is waiting to be discovered.
Paint curves and delves down into the soul’s crevices to reveal reality that is hidden there.
Paint moves into the spaces occupying forms and allows an image to appear.
Paint pulls at the edges to bring forth a thought and it can be beautiful and it can be ominous and it can be layered over to create reality.
Painting abstract reality is simply layering ones thoughts. Colors are thoughts, and time within a color can create nuances of an idea realized.
Paint creeps into crevices and a surprise element of light may appear.
Paint can add a dimension of one’s own self to skate along the surface and be absorbed into an edge.
Paint can reveal what is beyond an edge and crash into a color revealing solitude.
Painting color into color frees ones’ inhibitions about life, giving us a freedom to express a revelation onto canvas.
