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.
