“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.” – Pablo Picasso
If you look between the layers of colors and patterns in this painting you can see a wild forest of memories that describes an artist’s personal journey.
Many of us keep a journal or diary of our intimate thoughts and reflections about life. Sometimes there are just no words to describe a feeling or emotion. As an artist becomes one with the paint brush and canvas, a display of his reflections and memories emerge… a moment frozen in time forever. Just as a song-writer pens a classic, an artist paints his memoir. Each splash of paint is with purpose and meaning. Often times his expressions are hidden behind the layers.
What are you reflecting on these days? What colors would you choose for all the adjectives in the diary of your life?

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson This painting is named “Bridge” for the simple reason that there is a dominant white path way through the middle of the piece. In thinking about pathways, in life and art we sometimes find ourselves at a crossroad between decisions. Some decisions easily made and others require more thought and energy. Always finding the right path is a challenge. In art, following your instincts is a good path to creating art from your soul. Decisions on colors and methods easily fall into place as you begin to trust your soul’s intentions. My method of painting is to practice creating without judgment of my own work. It has been a journey of progression that is constantly evolving. My artwork is the result of the evolution of learning to trust my creative instincts.
Find your path and trust it.
