The quote this week is from Oprah - "When I look into the future, it's so bright it burns my eyes." There is some optimism for you. I like to think of myself as an optimist as well. I like to think that I can always find the silver lining. This spread already had the blue backgrounds done with different watercolor techniques. I added the sun cut from painted felt.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
