My Vision of Peace
Color Field has definitely taught me about Peace Love & Understanding in my work as an Artist! My work in this style is subjective and my goal is to simplify land, water and sky with color. I can set out on a day's journey and work from my car, on the beach or just sitting on a bench and be completely at peace. When I bring home my sketches to work at my easel on very large canvas and panel I am completely transported. I grew up learning from realism. I suppose that's how one would describe it... that kind of training is invaluable and fun.. now I believe I am truly painting what I see. I see more now in a sunrise and sunset then I ever did before... watching the paint come to life is so exciting and I truly do not know what is going to happen when I begin and that it why I trust it ... there is this action of giving up control trying to record every detail... its a metaphor for life I suppose. We cannot control everything there is a natural flow that becomes chaotic if we try to hard to stop or over manage things we create or life in general. I can always tell when I have done too much to my work... all that work, yet something is missing. I will always work in my traditional roots to strengthen my skills, however what is so life changing for is that these pieces are growth for me as an Artist so it seems only fitting that this work could possibly contribute to the growth of something much bigger than myself with the Peace Project.


Medium
Oil on canvas, palette knives, rags, brushes of all sizes, layers and layers of thin washes ... thinning the oil with medium that consists of damar varnish, gum spirits of turp, and linseed oil... or just turps!

This image solidifies my belief that we are put on this earth for a purpose. Why else would a sunrise put on such a spectacular show everyday? There has to be someone around to enjoy and share it with~

Very cool. Very welcoming...I'm home and I will never leave~
