Intuitive painting is one of my main sources of inspiration and my favorite way to paint. I allow the canvas to speak to me, leading me with each brush stroke. As I add bright vivid colors, layer by layer the paint begins to thicken. I start to hear whispers of needing to feel free. The need for exploration. Doodles of my favorite squarish loop-de-doo's begin to emerge, moving freely around the canvas. Suddenly various shapes start revealing the true message. A feather-like shape transforms the entire piece. To highlight the shapes, I tone down other colors by blocking areas with white, leaving paint thin enough to see there's life on the other side. The openings within the loops and feather act as portals. The white lines mimic paths and remind us some are repetitive and some have a few extra bumps and curves, just as our everyday lives. Each path leads to a portal which represent an escape to climb into for one's own personal adventure. This piece is a representation of the need to explore beyond my own mind and experience all the colors of the world. Adventure awaits. Will you take flight? How will you get there? Will you fly? Are you taking an airplane or riding on the back of a feathered friend or do you have your own wings to take you higher than you imagined, soaring farther than your biggest dreams? Enter at your own risk...you've been warned! Where will your next adventure take you?
