Reflection on 2011

Creativity has certainly been present in my life and my art during the past year. As the year comes to a close, I am filled with gratitude for the experiences and opportunities I was able to have. While observing my work I see a lot of feelings and emotions integrated in the colors weaving through the canvas. The hue of my life has been exposed in the temperature and contrast of these paintings. In reflecting on this year’s accomplishments a […]

One With the Art

We live in a world of busy people. We have so much “to do” and yet we never get it all done. Art gives us the opportunity to step into another world and make a connection with another reality. When I paint, I listen to music and let go of all of the cares and worries of the day. I step into my creative reality. In that reality there is no right or wrong. There is no blueprint for what […]

The Art of the Subconscious

I always think it is so interesting how the subconscious mind will reveal itself through ones creativity. I find what tends to flow out from me will sometimes emulate those artists whose work I have always admired. Although this is not a deliberate attempt to copy, I find that some of my work will in ways resemble or at least have the same feeling as some of the masters that I have been able to see in museums around the […]

Feel the Vibe!

Feel the Vibe!

Vibe is a celebration of positive thoughts and actions stemming from personal breakthroughs. As we strive to become enlightened, we full fill our inner quest for happiness. Vibe speaks to the power of our purposeful actions and joy. Each of us vibrate at a resonance frequency. When we see art that we like, it is because the art also vibrates at our frequency. My intention is to create work that reaches many people at many levels. I strive to speak […]

Creativity is the Access to the Soul

Creativity is the access to the center of the soul. When I paint, I connect with my feelings and let the canvas and the paint interact with them to develop into the creation of expression. I have no idea what is going to be exposed in this process. To get into the space, I set up my canvas and paint. Then I turn on the music and go into meditation. As I proceed in this process, I see no right […]

The Art of the Series

Up until recently, I painted whatever I wanted to paint, whenever I wanted to paint it. Inspiration for me has never been an issue. All I have to do is look outside my window at all the glory of nature and I am off and running. I love the process of putting paint to canvas, and I feel a strong connection to each and every one of my paintings. I always sense that I have left a piece of my […]

Opposites Attract

Fusionart is the merging of opposites. We take our internal extremes and coax them into a single artistic purpose. As an artist, one is charged with the responsibility of creating. The process is one of letting the power flow through you and not blocking the creativity. As we paint, the brush, the canvas and the spirit lead the way. When your mind is in charge, you try to make something happen. Therein lies the difficulty; you are trying to force […]

The Universe is a Fusionartist

The Universe is a Fusionartist. From the beginning of time, the Universe imbued the Earth with color. Every tree, every flower, every animal and rock has hue and shade to distinguish it. Can you imagine if the world had been created without color? It is as though the Universe realized that mankind would respond creatively to all the colors in nature. When I look at a tree and see the movement of the leaves, I am always impressed with how […]

Artists at Play

At the August Fusionart retreat, I had the most fun painting that I can ever remember. My old friend Mehrdad and I spent the day just playing. Free from structure and restrictions, we painted without trying to make anything happen. We were creating the process of creating. The work just flowed, and the fun and laughter abounded. Mehrdad and I talked so much that I was afraid Rassouli, our teacher, was going to through us out of the class. When […]

The Power of Forgetting

The Power of Forgetting

Maybe Bonnie should call the class “Anyone Can Teach!” I wasn’t sure how to prepare for the class, and this got me to thinking about how I approach painting and how I have developed my process over time. Here’s what I figured out about myself: Early in my career, I had a lot to learn. I studied with Rassouli and Fusionart and learned the things I needed to know. Now I am at the point in my art where the […]
