Eventually, I began to paint a series of flowers on larger canvases using larger brushes. Painting on a larger scale gave me a different perspective and I enjoyed the more contemporary quality the artwork achieved.
“YOUR STYLE IS THE WAY YOU TALK IN PAINT”
BY ROBERT HENRI
I can relate to this quote because the individual subject or painting seems to dictate the outcome. Always evolving as an artist, I have recently begun to explore different mediums and tools such as the palette knife, and wax while working towards an expressionistic style. I am striving to inject an emotional content and personal interpretation-keeping with a limited palette and using pure color. Using the palette knife forces me to concentrate on color juxtapositon rather than accuracy. Painting from memory has been an incredible revelation.I hope to infuse the energy that I felt when originally inspired to paint the particular subject or the idea that I had in mind.
There is much freedom in expressing one’s emotion on canvas and ultimately making that connection with the viewer.
