Art-whether it's a song, a poem, or a painting-is simply the free expression of thought and feeling in some kind of tangible form.
I'm drawn to abstract painting because it requires the viewer to become an equal participant in the creative process. The artist creates, then says to the observer, "Tell me what you see..."
Every interpretation is as valid as any other-no two will be exactly alike-and even the artist can't say what is right or wrong, because the work no longer belongs to him or her alone.
A painting is like a child. You start with the best of intentions. You try your hardest to mold and shape them-but each has a personality and direction of their own. All you can do is pour your soul into them and hope they turn out well...
