put, my work is my personal interaction and interpretation
with a person or thing; confluence. Confluence reaches
past the surface of materials and technique used in the
process of creating, it is the result of an inner journey
one travels in an effort to convey a personal vision.
The process of painting is much more than recording the
obvious. My goal is to say as much as I can about my subject
without saying it all so that it leaves the viewer to
become an integral part of the painting.
than technique, it is how we, as artists, interpret
our own personal vision through our medium that elevates
an ordinary subject into a work of art, one that resonates
long after. I feel strongly in the versatility and flexibility
of the medium and go to great lengths to push the medium
in directions that may not be considered characteristic
to traditional watercolor.
