One part dream, one part memory, one part meditation. The surface of these paintings are unapologetically candy apple gloss. In some cases I have added hundreds of thin layers of transparent paint (glaze) to the canvas. That means I add a thin layer of paint to the canvas every few days over the course of a year. In some areas of these canvases you can see into the paint like a glass marble. I write little notes and words on the canvas before I begin. I also meditate on the feelings of words while I lose myself in the paint. Eventually the paint covers the words but the feeling remains.
This is original art and the images are representational. They have a partial narrative yet I have left space for the viewer. Life is crowded, hopefully these images leave space for your memories, your colorful dreams, and time for you to meditate. I believe everyone is an artist - even if you don't paint, I hope these resonate with your inner artist.
