My earlier series was all about the feeling of peace and bliss from being in the wilderness. I hoped to share the joy I found in such a simple activity. My paintings were all about Beauty. “Beauty is a Primal Force, an antidote to the angst of our times” is my quote.
My current series is more focused on Truth. And my truth is: finding the time and money to paint while supporting myself working full time in a down economy is challenging. When I read about artists living in cold water flats, having to choose between buying cigarettes or food, it sounds Noble, Heroic, and Inspiring. Not so sure that living it has felt the same. At any rate, in the spirit of Truth, I’ve decide to write about it. So, you be the judge.
