I wanted to paint something colorful and dream-like. I love the idea of challenging perceptions of realism in art and I am beginning to believe that what we see is always questionable. However, I do believe it is false to rely solely on intuition for guidance–being able to utilize one’s intuition while under control leads to perfect harmony. I painted many landscapes in various styles–impressionism, realism, and abstract–and I feel that each one is different. This is perhaps because I allow the painting to speak rather than impose myself on the painting.
