Somewhere between the real and the surreal is that area that comes to us as thoughts. Some thoughts come through vivid as your face in the mirror, others like some dark shape in the corner of your bedroom at 4:00 am. This is where my art comes from. Sometimes it is focused from the start……other times not so clearly defined. Sometimes the name of the painting is fixed in my mind before I take a brush stroke. Hopefully, the end results in the idea being transformed into a two dimensional form of imagination and justifies the effort.
