Reason clears and plants the wilderness of the imagination to harvest the wheat of art.” – Austin O’Malley

Without hard work and persistence, growth is stagnant and the harvest of hope and transformation comes up short.

This painting is an abstract view of a wine vineyard ready for harvesting.  Teams of harvesters come together to gather grapes in the process of making a flawless bottle of wine.  Balance and perfection takes work and determination.

We should all strive to be a team that produces a harvest of hope and imagination in this world.

We don’t create a fantasy world to escape reality. We create it to be able to stay.” – Lynda Barry

Escaping into a fantasy world is normal.  Sometimes it is necessary so that we can remain sane in life.  It also increases your imagination and ability to discover.  Innovation and ingenuity starts in the mind.

This painting, The Escape is the formulation of fantasies.  The torrential downpour of the vivid colors describes a fantasy realm in an artist’s mind.  Fantasies or day-dreams are portals to new ideas and enhance the process of creativity.

"Life is like a carnival. When you are little, everything is smoke, b2ap3_thumbnail_Carnival.jpgmirrors, and illusions. Then you grow up." – Linda Poindexter

Imagine when you were a kid and you’d go to the carnival or circus. All the colors seemed brighter and the rides were enormous. Your cotton candy was a fluffy piece of heaven. There were no calories to worry about and no dizzy spells from the rides. It was just a lively spectacle of imagination and fun!

This painting Carnival depicts animated scenes of a boisterous atmosphere.  A sight that is charged up with energetic fusion and wild echoes of expression. The splashes of color expose the assembly of all the carnival artists and vendors hustling about, making magic happen for the youthful at heart.

Summer is here, it’s time to enjoy our favorite pastimes!

If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” – Rudyard Kipling, ‘The Collected Works’

Each painting that I create tells a story.  It’s up to the viewer to create those stories.  I challenge you today to choose a painting and write a story about it.  Give it life.  Bring your experiences and imagination into it.  What lies beneath the colors?  What memories does the painting evoke?

This painting is called Perception because it rains with intuition and insight.  We all have a story to tell with a lesson learned.  The colors that stream through this painting create an elusive beginning to one’s personal story.  Fill in the blanks.  Live through this painting by creating its origin!

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." - Plato

As a musician gives birth to a song, so does a fine artist to a painting. A paint brush is the breath of life to a canvas, cultivating an imagination and bringing all the elements together in unity. Just as a song takes form in melody and rhythm, the vibration of colors on a canvas begin to take form and blossom into an array of emotions. One can interpret each stroke of color and placement of shapes into their own experiences, bringing a fresh perspective to another eye.
