My first and foremost passion in painting would be portraits. I enjoy the process of creating life from person to brushstrokes. My portraits can come in all styles; Realism,Abstract, Expressionism and more. In this painting "Evolution" Acrylic paints on canvas large 30'W by 40"L; my style I categorize as Expressionism. After each layer of color was thoughtfully arranged using tools I felt compelled to use; fork, palette knife,foam brush, painter brush. Afterward, drawing the lady onto of the layers of background color. The face and hair details are used with a small fine point brush. I love to capture the eye and lips as the focal point. The lips has a calm expression and the eye says I am here and I will not be moved no matter how much evolves around me, no matter how sad, happy, joyful I will be as I evolve I will not let this life break me. So, this is what inspires me as I am painting a portrait. I want to paint the inner soul, the reason.
She is yourself,myself,our daughters .....evolving from who she was to who she wants to be. Her eyes seek for the moment. She saw life as simple to only find things were more complex. No matter the force; she stands strong.
