My personal philosophy of art, is that art is a creative way to express your feelings, your thoughts, and dreams in whatever medium that you are working in. Abstract expressionism is a way to creatively place my emotions on canvas and enjoy the colors and textures that come from the purposeful randomness of the piece. In my traditional art, I enjoy painting places that are local landmarks because they are often the places that people congregate to enjoy life. These are the places that people chose to express their freedom. Many of the places that I paint bring me great joy in seeing the structure, but also from the activities that go on in them. So, I chose the title “Expressions” for my show. I love to see people expressing themselves and appreciate all of the emotions that expressing ones self can bring to life. Art is full of color and life should is very colorful. I want to express my love of living and this show is my expression of joyful happiness.
