Life as an artist

Recently I have been experimenting more with mixed media and drawing, and yet I constantly find myself drawn back to tone and the mysteries of creating something real with nothing more than strokes of colour and paint. Some artists use these simple materials to create a whole different world, to express what they want to (whether we understood it or not) and the world they create can be truly beautiful in its constant activation of the canvas, and its dancing surprises of colour and tone juxtapositions. I would like to work towards this level of mastery, while expressing my own preoccupations in my own way. The combination of the real and the unreal to express a feeling, intuition or a moment of understanding, is both my temptation and my goal.
