“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Mysterious Beauty

True individuality almost seems like a luxury at times, and I don’t always get a chance to just express myself. If I create what comes naturally to me will anyone like it? Do I try and create what I think others will like or do I create what is in my heart. I try not to over think it and just let the picture be what it wants to be.

This painting is an example of one I am really enjoying and it is a bit intense. The colors are bright and alive as is the texture on the surface. There is depth however in the underlying layers. Taken all together it is a unique combination of many styles I have been experimenting with. This image is composed of a photograph of a glass ornament, painted over, textures applied and a heavy oil paint overlay. I am really enjoying the overall effect and I hope that you find beauty here as well.
