When I create my art, I want to take you by the hand and show you all the little awesome things that I see in nature.
Sometimes we get too busy to see them, or too distracted by other things going on. One of the jobs of an artist is to see the little things that other people sometimes miss - and to share them with the world...
The act of creating art, for me, is just me saying:
"I saw this. It made me feel happy (or serene, or joyful, or intrigued).
I want to share it with you."
I anchor this emotion inside myself by re-creating it in art - the thing that inspired it, and the emotion itself, are both what I try to put into the artwork...
Now that that special feeling, that emotion, are in a tangible form, I can share this emotion with you - I can properly tell you about what I saw and how I felt - and share it all with you.
"I want to show you the awesomeness of nature - how I see it, how I feel it - I want you to see it too, share it with me, experience it right alongside me..."
I hope that you enjoy experiencing nature along with me and that it makes you as happy as it makes me... :)
