Creating Art imbued with Beauty, Alive with Color, Radiant with Light is my voice of gratitude to the Family of Life. Since growing up in under big Midwestern skies in rural Michigan I have been inspired by beauty- the Beauty of the natural world, found pristinely here in Maine, as well as within each one of us. The Creative Energy at the core of both the inner and outer world is my constant source of awe and inspiration. Painting is a collaborative experience with color. I first began my dialog with color in the early eighties. For months I painted one-color paintings of each of the colors of the spectrum, using wet-on-wet watercolor technique. With little imposition on my part, the colors moved freely in the fluid medium of the water. Each color possesses and shares a unique conscious resonance conveyed in a sensual language. I felt I was being tutored in that language. I experienced each one as sacred essence, a powerful conscious energy. Finally I began to paint with the whole spectrum together. I observed each color, hold its uniqueness and simultaneously flow and merge with its closest neighbor in the Spectrum— Magenta into Red, Red into Orange, Orange into Yellow, Yellow through Green into Viridian Green, the center still point. On the other side Viridian flowed into Blue, Blue into Indigo, and Indigo into Violet.
