Blue Flower Skull

Piece description from the artist

This series was done for the " Dia de los Muertos" Marigold Festival in 2013 in Sedona, AZ. The main Project was a 30 ft community mural. "I saw the angel in te marble and carved until I set him free" -Michelangelo. I don't necessarily see the angel in the canvas, rather I feel it. Finding most of my creative flow within the wildlife genera, I developed a way to sculpt, define, & build volume with paint, layer by layer, creating a beautiful play of light and shadow, filled with unexpected colors side by side. It's a dance, a push and pull until the form becomes whole. I find my wildlife subjects to have soulful eyes, and once I become mesmerized, the painting is complete.There is a large zen element in my approach to painting. Each time I step up to my canvas to paint, I step up as I am in the moment, what I painted yesterday does not matter. To learn to connect and to flow with what I am painting in the moment, yet to still be able to be objective. Enabling me to push the boundaries of what is possible with layers, color, texture, brush movement, and size. I find such a sense of peace in my creative pursuits; art is a way of life.
