Moving to a new city and state has been an adventure, but it’s also difficult to start over when it comes to having photography clients. On the positive though, the transition has allowed me some time to keep being creative and to explore a little more with the boundaries I’ve been accustomed to when it comes to painting. I am a realist at heart! I love to capture the natural beauty around me. When it comes to painting in the abstract, I have never had much success (although the word success may not be the best since it is fairly relative, especially when it comes to art). I could never get my hands to achieve the images I saw in my mind. So this time I tried something new. I allowed my hands to be a little more free from the rule of the right side of my brain, and I tried to let what I felt translate into colors. I am excited to keep stretching myself and see what else may come of it!
