Meditation. Prayer. Being "visited." Inspiration. Communion. How does an artist describe that state when time falls away and the work surprises us?
All artists are experimenters. We notice the ordinary. We respond to it, and sometimes it leads us down paths we haven't visited before.
Renoir said, "There are enough ugly things in life for us not to add to them." In the face of the world's troubles, things still bloom, but you must look for them.
Small oil pastels on paper, each is an original created for my series, Where Things Bloom. Each image measures 6" x 3". Ten of them are framed to 16" x 13" in archival frames designed for preservation and protection.
These paintings reveal what seem like veins of precious stone or metal along with snippets of papers, markers of human experience.
