Sit back. Relax. Take a deep breath.
One of my greatest joys is to hear how a painting of mine has impacted a viewer. Sometimes they're mesmerized. Occasionally, some whimsy in the painting will provoke a giggle. Often times though, it's a sense of serenity or peace.
When I paint, my goal is to create something that may provide a momentary rest from the constant barrage of information and sensory overload we have come to accept as “normal”.
