I am inspired by the challenge of trying to paint something I don’t know how to paint. I paint to learn how and to know the subject, the light and shadow, the layers of abstraction, its depth, and meaning to me.
I had to dive into the pool with my son to feel the whimsy, wonder, and surreal experience of swimming in sprinkles made of plastic. As I dive into it through painting I discover not just how it looks but also how it feels to me. It’s a representation of a dream perhaps, too illogical to be reality, and yet here we are bathed in it. That abstraction becomes the reality. The absurd becomes natural, just as natural as a child at play.
