Artist

Carol 2
"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time" Thomas Merton. I am an artist. Not that my work, which is all experimental is especially good. It’s just that it reflects my dreams, my fantasies, my soul. My inspiration comes from everything I see around me, music, the clear blue sky but mostly from other artists on this site who, good or not so good, are wondrous, kind, funny, tragic and loving people. It is dangerous for me to drive down the street because my eyes get drawn to a cloud or a mountain or a tree and I see a painting instead of the road. Bad girl! I have been around so long that I’ve seen and done just about everything. I listen to music that was popular when or before most of you were born. It is not possible to do art without music and when possible a glass of wine helps. I can start a painting around other people, but must finish it myself. Originality is all I have and even if it isn’t fine art it is from me. I want to save the earth and a thousand years of peace and to know that no animal or child will ever again see abuse. I am a dreamer and a realist – my art can’t seem to decide which any more than I can. So…that’s me.

Latest comment This absolutely magical enchanting fabulous painting ! The color combination is perfect. It's so pleasant for the eyes, which I think is the purpose of an abstract. I love this work! Zina Smirny
   
Just emerging from self- imposed hibernation as I have not had a creative idea in months. A artists version of "writers block", how do others cope and revive...
Rick, there is no words to describe this painting. So easy to understand when we look at it. I feel that the cross represent the soldiers and the popies... view answer
