Reflections of Art

Creating art is both a reflection of the subject and the artist.

Everything you perceive is interpreted by your heart and eventually reflected in the finished art creation. All art is very personal - each time you paint a picture, you paint something about yourself. The way you apply your brushstrokes, the colors you use, and especially the subjects you choose to paint all show your individuality.

What inspires you to create art? Most inspiration comes from what we experience and know. Your inspiration is your own personal muse.

To begin, you must make choices about your personal selection of colors, brushes, and paper or other materials, but the most important tool is your own mind's eye. How can you take your thoughts, feelings, and perceptions and translate them to paper?

The essence of art lies in the excitement of creation and the fulfillment you feel when you finish a work of art.

I love nature, reflections, and interesting shapes and forms.
What does that say about me?
