The dance begins with a scribble, the first cutting of the pencil into the paper. Sometimes the scribble is all that will remain, a simple jig, a quick immediate encounter of pencil to paper. The fun begins-- the exploration and the discovery. The work begins to source itself, leads the dance. This is the most delicious part for it is an invitation to play, to be free to take risks, to make mistakes, discoveries, growth and yes joy, and a sense of wonder and abandoned passions.
There is no guarantee, no certainty that the subject will be interesting, that the colors will be bright, that the line will hold, that something will be conveyed, that the composition will seduce and hold the attention. But when all of it works, when for some Divine reason it is meant to be, it is a magical creation.
There is no meaning, no message to be learned. It is simply:
With my passion for color, for light, for paint and for the line, I have created a language through which I can communicate and share my joy and celebration of life.
