When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.
I drew one of the sunflowers that was in a vase of dying flowers that I had picked from a field of flowers last week. Suddenly I felt that I was looking at a Van Gogh painting and I wanted to see if I could capture that. I didn't even get close but I had fun doing it.
