Expressing emotions sometimes may be difficult for some, but for myself, I enjoy using acrylics and oil pastels to create multi-layered emotional compositions. One of the things that amazes me most in creating art is the movement of my hands becoming more like a musical conductor when he is conducting an orchestra. Every piece I create is an extension of my inner self. Balancing both the past and the present using bold colors and textural layers help to create such expressive abstract works of art. Combining different ideas and constructing them into a beautiful moving piece is both challenging and rewarding at the same time. To visualize the movement of the music and transpose those movements of rhythm, melody, and color into my painting are intuitive strokes of beauty.
If a viewer takes a moment to stop and reflect on one of my pieces, then I have accomplished what I set out to accomplish. The accomplishment being that there is a connection between the viewer and the painting. Composition takes careful planning and consideration on canvas and paper. My paintings give the audience the feeling of rhythm and movement as if one were standing in the midst of a field or orchestra. Without the ability to visualize an idea or concept, no form of art would ever truly exist.
