Art has always been my secret passion, especially abstract art. Over the last year my passion went from an inner vision to an outer reality. I walked into an art store with my copies of research I got off the internet. After several hours of looking and gawking at the new world I had entered, I armed myself with my first canvas and numerous paints and supplies. I ran home to begin my first abstract painting. I now have close to 12 paintings and have exhibited twice. Painting fills me with a sense of accomplishment, a calmness I never knew before. It frees my imagination and provides for happy accident to influence my finished work. I’m now painting daily, varied pieces exploring innovative techniques, many textures and colors.
