In a way, I feel that I am always searching for something, and I wonder how many other people feel that way too. There have been many times when I have felt like I have found something wonderful! But then, eventually, the search continues.
This searching is what drives me forward in my art. My deep and passionate love and appreciation of Nature is what drives me to find a way to express my feelings about it. I see it as a gift to me, to us, from the Creator. This beautiful world is a gift, and I want to give something back. An offering perhaps. I need to express this. And so, I search. I search for the way to say thank you in my own voice.
Yes, I know. There is nothing new under the sun. I learn from here and there, from this one and that one. I used to feel sorry for myself because I cannot go to school to learn all the methods of making art. But, in the end, I think it might be best that I find my own way. Since what I am seeking is my own unique voice, perhaps it is best that I search for it on my own. That is why what you see here varies so wildly from one project to another. I am trying different things out. Searching for what fits and what feels right. I have a shadowy vision of where I want to go, but it hasn't materialized completely yet. I can feel that I am getting closer though. Closer to a vision that looks like me.
