The act of painting is about one heart telling another heart where he found salvation.
This painting is so very idealistic it hurts!
It is belongs in the room of a young girl. My grandmother and mother made me a quilt of these same colors when I was a child. Feminine and ornate this painting reminds me of the Palace of Versailles and Baroque style. The flowers that were in front of me last night as I painted it... they are the objects that are so beautiful they are my salvation. They are my comfort.
A contemporary artist can use the findings of all epochs and all styles, from the most primitive literary expressions up to the most refined products of the baroque.
