My digital paintings reflect what I respond to. There is joy in the arrangement of design elements and colors within a composition. And there is beauty of varied shape and form. Familiar, comfortable objects like fruit or books express the fragility of the moment, but also become something eternal and timeless frozen forever in the picture. "Durability," "Immortality." And symbolism. Things I respond to - all objects have significance. Personal and profound symbols. The more we look, the more we see. Most importantly we see that transient beauty can become transformed consciously and subconsciously. It is awareness of response: what do objects on a shelf become for us? Symbols, memories, expressions, feelings. Together with the highest level of my ability the still-life objects in my paintings make my work meaningful. Most of all, my work is therapy for me and an essential part of my recovery.
