The early psychologists taught us that everything we see and experience is altered by our emotions and personal experiences. The Impressionists taught us that the world we see and the colors within it are created by light bouncing off the receptors in our eyes. In this series I am merging these two ideas by exploring “seeing” and a sense of place through use of color, movement, and feeling. The marks and colors are all in response to their surroundings on the picture plane. As the dance begins, the narrative of the story begins to unfold and the sense of place deepens. The marks are the nouns and verbs, the colors are the adverbs and adjectives. “Painting seems like some kind of peculiar miracle that I need to have again and again.” ~Phillip Guston
