About

"Playing with Paint"

It wasn't until 2003 while visiting the galleries of Santa Fe, NM that I felt compelled to explore painting. I randomly chose acrylic paints, mediums and canvases and began experimenting. My learning curve began with the thoughts of “I wonder what will happen when I ……” and this curiosity continues.

If a painting takes on an undesired path, I make a different choice and throw on a different color. Then, when and if the original colors poke through, it's a reminder of the path the painting had taken. Each painting has a life of it’s own. Sometimes I have a sense of the direction I want to take the painting. With others, I follow the path the painting insists on taking. Sometimes, it’s the smooth butter-like tactile sensation when pulling the palette knife across the canvas that I love. Other times, it's how the colors interact with each other and experimenting with mediums and watching the earlier layers poke through in surprising ways.

During the process of painting, I’m bringing my life experiences, wishes and temperament to the canvas. Ultimately, I seem to gain life lessons and a sense of peace and authenticity from my time spent with the paints and canvas.

When a painting session is going well, I become lost in my thoughts and lose all track of time. It's a wonderful sensory experience and a departure from the otherwise detail-oriented life I lead.

    After a trip to Santa Fe, NM I decided to explore painting...since then I've continued to attend classes and discover a creative side that I had no idea even existed before painting!
