Doors and Fates

Every stroke of the brush influence the outcome of the rest. Someone producing an exhibition sees your paintings and wants you to join the show. Someone arranges an art camp, and new motions are energized. I tend to look upon art as the natural expression of human beings. Trees, receiving the impressions of sunlight and water, express leaves. We are thrown into life and express art. We have always done so. It is our foot prints as a species. It is all very beautiful and simple, like most things are, if we dare let them be.

Art opens doorways to new impressions. Just like leaves can nourish animals of many kinds, art can nourish us. It becomes part of the great wheel, producing new dreams, and crushing others. This is a new piece of mine. I call it Doors and Fates. I see many beautiful paths, but the body is limited to one at a time.
