Art should reveal something about us to others AND to ourselves. It’s an act of self-discovery and revelation. Art, any art form, is about communication and connection.
When we connect with the work of an artist, we learn more about our inner self and what is important to us.
Perfection is a mirage. Looks good in the distance but you'll never get there. Just do the work and you may be surprised about what you learn.
An artist's vocabulary is brushstrokes, medium and colour. As van Gogh came into his full creative power, his vocabulary pulsed with energy and colour.
Creative flow is best described as being so engaged in an activity that time disappears. The challenge of capturing water in all its forms and beauty creates Flow in my own painting practice. It's also the theme of my solo show at Artsplace
