“We have two types of responses to color and one is biological.” – Leslie Harrington
Blue is an overwhelming "favorite color." Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable, and committed. The color of ocean and sky, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives. As the collective color of the spirit, it invokes rest and has been scientifically proven to cause the body to produce chemicals that calm, lower heart rate and blood pressure. People are more productive in blue rooms because it is ideal for concentration. However, not all blues are serene and sedate.
Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic -- an engaging color that expresses exhilaration.
Indigo, a deeper blue, symbolizes wisdom and spiritual realization. While blue is the color of communication with others, indigo turns the blue inward to increase personal thought and profound insights. Blue happens to be a hue I love to work with perhaps as a result of its wonderful qualities. My affinity for blue has always been part of my journey as an artist.

“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” – Maya Angelou
Artists have been charged with the duty of transforming the world through various media. We have the freedom to express joy, warmth, and love through our art. The result of that expression is we grow closer together and we attract the world to our doors. We can bring peace and harmony to the world. That is the calling of our art. Recently, I donated some of my artwork to a couple of very good causes. In doing so, I released that part of my personal spirit out to the world with the hope of creating good or helping bless someone’s life in some way. Giving is a great way to feel good about life. Create a giving habit, in your life, be it small or large and reap the unknown and known blessings from it. Explore your possibilities…..

"The moment of enlightenment is when a person's dreams of possibilities become images of probabilities." -Vic Braden
We live in a world of infinite possibilities. Art is one medium that reveals the concept of possibility. The purpose of my paintings is to provoke thought in the viewer. By conveying creative energy onto canvas, the essence of my creative thoughts manifests and transfers to the imagination of the viewer. My paintings are like a net that captures the fish of creativity, then they are released on a canvas to be viewed by the world's eye.
