For me, painting is a celebration of life and how light and color interact. I always approach my work with enthusiasm and energy. Painting feels like a rather intimate experience as I spend an inordinate amount of time with each work - from the original photography sessions through the visualization exercise to the initial sketches and beyond. Whole process is a life experience which gives happiness and strength to live.
My latest work is just playing with acrylic paint- trying out textures and combining run, drip, flow effects. I usually use these as a background in each case, I imagine what would best go with the semi-accidentally achieved background – so the process is an adventure rather than a contrived painting from the beginning!
Painting takes me out of plainness of life, and helps me appreciate beauty, colors, as well as soothes me. Though I have not achieved the high standards of painting but even my attempts make me realize that there is something else beyond this material world.
