I have found over and over again that when someone asks me about one of my paintings there is a story behind why I have painted it. People have many times bought a piece of my work because of its story. For my SMAHC grant project, ‘Every Painting Has a Story,’ I will write about, photograph and create a 15-piece series. I will incorporate words, phrases, symbols, gold and silver leaf, rice paper, handmade papers and found objects to loosen up my work and help tell the stories of my paintings.
I will be documenting this process on my blog. I invite you to join me on this journey. Please follow along by clicking the 'follow' button or entering you email address in the box on the left side. Thanks.
