"Who you are is always constant as long as you are faithful to what you want to say in your art. "
One of my coaches said this awhile back and I have been thinking about it a lot relative to the directions I want to take artistically, and actually in my life. Really, don't we all want to be faithful to who we are inside? For some time now, I have celebrated the beauty and peace that I find in the landscape, hoping to share that little slice of peace with others.
Most of the pastel painters that I know work in a very representational style. I want to explore more, yet still stay faithful to what I want to say in my art. To that end, I have begun a new series after much thought.
The series is entitled Juxtapositions because I will explore representational oil landscapes juxtaposed with abstracted pastel work.
Here are the first pieces that I have made for this show. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
