make art. transform life.

thoughts about creativity and  art:   live your life as your work of art.

Chlorosis (love-sick)

To remind me of images that constantly inform my work, I went to see Bonnard. It is amazing how each personal perspective informs us of new ways of looking at the world.bonnard-the-bathroom-1932jpgI've found that everything I look at informs my perception and in time, my drawings, paintings and soul. Choosing to make time to see, read and experience what moves me can only help to deepen my work and consequently, my inner person.
