Color. Rich, deep, vibrant color. I translate the ordinary
world around me into a fantasy world. My world. Houses, streets, yards, rivers, trees, people, birds,
animals. I paint them “as if”. As if their pure clear nature was shining
through. To me, that is about color. Simple forms and layers of color. Ordinary
everyday images from my life, but not muffled by reality. Not complicated by
the grimy detail of life. I paint until I feel I could dive in to the image. Swim
around in lakes of color. Comfortable, familiar, light.
