The world doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do? – Picasso
Abstraction: The quality of dealing with ideas rather than events. I’m not an abstract painter, but I really (REALLY) believe in trying new things, especially artistically. This piece, Conversations, is the result of venturing into new territory. I laid down the colors and lots of water, then let the water run. When it was done, it looked, to me, like people standing around having conversations. In this overly-connected world that leaves many of us feeling ironically disconnected, I liked the idea of that.
