“Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious and adding the meaningful.” – John Meada    

Making the decision to simplify our lives is the first cornerstone to actually starting the process. It is definitely a process and not something that we expect to complete as a task in one day. Creating a complicated, even stressful life took probably years to build.  But there is hope. If simplicity is what you desire that is half the battle. It is important to note that in a frenetic state of mind our concentration suffers. We are running around making mistakes, wasting energy and not really thinking clearly. Slowing down your thoughts and actions or simplifying is actually more productive because you will regain composure and be able to prioritize what needs to be done first. When we take time to breathe it replenishes our thoughts, reduces stress, and we see the big picture more clearly. As a result we get more accomplished in less time. If you make the decision to simplify, and commit to it, incredible things will happen.

“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.

"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.
