Art is delivered expression. The medium is a translation of the artists soul, seen and felt by those that view. The cause of creation can be planned, as well action of art is a living vibe, feel, flow, colour, direction and emotion, growth and peace. Actualized aesthetics.
Personally, when I paint I see turtles and eagles, serpents and sea creatures, eyes of the unknown set with character and history: all these images amongst a scene al natural; oceans to jungles sometimes painted is aliveness of the universe seen from a far, flow, colour, painting storey.
