Kendra Bontz

Mill Valley, CA

There are so many elements at play as I paint. The ground, the drawing, the composition, the light and shadow, the color palette are all present and demand my attention. I get lost as the painting is created and I wrestle with each until they are satisfied or not. Every painting is a new opportunity to connect with an object, nature, a person or space. The possibilities are endless. Magic.
