In my paintings, there's some mystery. Sometimes there's whimsy. My work contains various elements that I'm so glad are there; emotion, complexity, a lot of energy and movement, and symbols of life-truths. Over time, I allowed my style to naturally come forth. I wanted my art to be individual to me. I wanted it to have that honesty and integrity. I wanted it to translate what people go through and what they can achieve.
In this painting, called, It's For You, it's about the mystery and complexities of life. This woman at the old styled phone booth hears it ringing. Well, she wasn't expecting the call. I like asking, "Who could it be?" or "What could they want?" or "Why would someone be calling way out here in the middle of nowhere?" In my life, I need these questions, I need some mystery, and I need to not always know what's around the corner. This makes me feel young and I like to stay curious. It seems to me that when life is too predictable, it loses its luster.
If you're ever out in the middle of nowhere and a phone rings, maybe you should answer it. ;)
