“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.

"Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels." – Francisco de Goya
Sometimes there’s no logic in art. There’s only the illusion of something greater. Art is expression; a fantastical world in which an artist’s mind travels. Occasionally, there aren’t enough colors in the spectrum to convey what an artist envisions. Art is a feeling; an energetic vibration of an altered life.
The virtual movement in this painting merges energy with fantasy. The intensity of the contrast in colors and progression illustrates the origin of abstract art.
I started painting in 2005. The journey and evolvement has enriched my soul immensely. I paint with appreciation for life—the past, present and future. My heart is overwhelmed with gratefulness to everyone who shares in my passion. Going forward into the upcoming year, I will continue to create, inspire and affect those around me with heightened marvels of color and energy.
