2012 has been a productive year. I define painting as a constant process of search and discovery. The search is my voice and the painting my vision. Nature is the inspiration and the use of color, line and movement keeps me driven.
I love to paint. It challenges me on all levels. My biggest breakthrough is the level of comfort I’ve come to know through a lot of hard work. I’m talking in years not hours. Ability is never enough and I’ve come to recognize that once I felt secure in my struggles, I knew I could call myself an “artist.”
Exhibiting and blogging were two achievements in 2012 that I intend to keep going in 2013. It’s nice to reflect on the past year but I’m eager to see what’s next. Happy New Year!
