    I have a passion for painting. As a college student, I studied art history, ancient through modern, and was enamored with color, form, linear quality, light, and abstraction. I developed a deep affection for the creative process. Art allows expression, exploration, and creativity. It is good for the soul.

    This painting, Exposed, is an adventure into the simple use of pattern, space, and dots of color along with value changes to emphasize form and invoke an emotional response. I love to watch an idea come to life through blending painting elements and principles within the concept of abstraction.

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.
