Art, is primarily a communication and therefore should make a statement powerful enough to linger on the minds of the viewer. Whether you are painting a flower or sculpting a figure, your art contains a piece of you.
Every single piece is totally unique. I like to tell a story with my paintings. But like the characters in a book where you imagine their appearance, I have painted the characters and it is their story you can piece together.
Seek to leave your audience lingering for more!
