STATEMENT

My art for the most part reveals types of diversity in subject, though the process and technique can be similar. Color is usually the driving force in a given work. My inspiration is usually music or a walk in the park/ woods or exploring a new landscape or exploring a special section of a city or town. The painting ( W/C )"Bird Songs " was inspired from a hike in the wood , seeing and listing to the many different sounds of birds in the tree canopies .
