My paintings are based on observation. whether it’s painting or drawing from life, or participating in or watching a situation transpire and then taking the images in my mind’s eye and assembling the parts later in my studio. I think as humans we all have an innate ability to be transpired by art, no education or money needed. However both the artist and the viewer might need a bit of faith in the unseen.
