One is named Bijoux, because bijou is French for jewelry. And that painting simply felt like a lot of suspended jewels. These paintings evolve and like I have learned, we humans treat or regard paintings as other humans at least that’s how our brains work, So when I’m working on the painting, I feel like I am communicating in an odd way with an entity which wants to make a statement and it’s my job to bring it tomake that statement. In a painting like Bijoux, I don’t have a plan beforehand I simply develop it, and do my best to bring forth a completed beautiful work of art.
The other is named By the Sea. Sometimes the painting starts as an abstract and evolves into a recognizable image. This is how By The Sea evolved. I love architecture and often feel like my paintings go in that direction so I follow that and I feel like all the imagery inside the building, can speak as though it’s showing us the emotions and thoughts that might be contained in that structure.
