Thoughts About Art From

It is one of those topics that maybe we all will never come totally in agreement with. There are always pieces of art that defy the imagination and capture your heart, and sometimes there is art where we stand back and look and wonder what it is all about.

Art is individual, as specific as every one of us. However the reality is whatever an artist produces is art but it simply boils down to whether the masses accept it or reject it.

Art to me is very individual, and each piece is distinct not just in its appearance but in the feel it stands for on the canvas.

When I paint I try to catch the feeling of the minute. I repaint with my hands and hardly ever utilize a brush as I feel the have to work as rapidly as I can to produce the feelings that I want to reveal. So I deal with speed catching the minute at that time.

With the combination of sensations and fantasy I cover the canvas. I try not to make or follow any policies or allow restrictions as anything is allowed on the canvas.

Art to me is recording the state of mind, the feelings of the moment, and moving it onto the canvas. By working in this manner the photos have their own individuality and expression, and everybody begins to see something different in each picture. The even more you look into the canvas the more you can start to see come out to you. That to me is art, so that the individual looking onto the painting can use their own imagination when they see the painting, just like the artist did on its creation.
