I’ve always enjoyed the emotional outlet I get from painting. I love texture and depth. Sometimes I have a plan. Usually, it’s just time I’ve made for myself to paint and nothing more.
I studied art when I earned my design degree but I don’t think that has much to do with my paintings. I learned specific skills to do specific tasks required to design. Painting is a form of free expression. The idea of painting is to escape the ‘day to day.’ I do suppose, the commonality, is that I want an emotion to spark. Be it from a single canvas or a 3-dimensional space.
That’s all, really.
