I PAINT TO FULFILL MY PASSION FOR THE WORLD AROUND ME: PAINTING CHANGED THE WAY I SEE IT! COLORS OF THE SUNSET OR OF THE BLOOMING FLOWER, BOUNCE OF LIGHT ON THE WATER OR THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE CITY'S SKYLINE, EXPANSE OF THE COUNTRY FIELDS AND WEATHERED BARNS, BEAUTY OF HUMAN FACES AND INTRICACIES OF IT'S FORM. THEY ARE MORE THAN JUST THE SUBJECTS: THEY ARE INTRIGUING SHAPES, STARTLING CONTRASTS AND BEAUTIFUL LINES THAT CAPTURE MY HEART AND IMAGINATION. I PAINT HOW I FEEL IT AND HOPE TO PASS THIS FEELING TO THE VIEWER. I STARTED PAINTING IN WATERCOLOR, TOTALLY TAKEN BY IMMEDIACY OF THE MEDIUM. WATERCOLOR IS STILL MY FIRST LOVE, BUT I EXPLORE OILS, ACRYLICS AND CHARCOAL... EACH OF THEM SUIT DIFFERENT MOODS AND SUBJECTS.
My painting "Vortex of Instincts" was selected to be part of Hoosier Salon 92st Annual Exhibition 2016 and " Water Break" won "Best of Show" Wilbur Meese Award at Watercolor Society of Indiana annual exhibit, which was held at Indianapolis Museum of Art, October through December 2015.
