I love the quiet of painting still life scenes, the rawness of painting a landscape plein air, and the challenge of bringing creatures to life in a painting in a way that a still photo can rarely match. I love the way oil paint slides across a canvas. I love holding a brush in my hand. I love walking a line between detail and abstract strokes and marks. I love that I get to learn something new about reality and perception every time I paint. I love that in the end, I have a little piece of my experience to share with someone else, who may have needed exactly the same as I did.
