The Art of Storytelling

PAINTING, for me, is just another form of storytelling.

Each brush stroke a word, a phrase, a feeling, a gesture.

Each section a sentence, paragraph, or chapter, one leading seamlessly to the next.

Each row resolving itself back and forth, up and down, in a harmonious, colorful whole.

The story has multiple plots and hidden meanings.

It expresses something ineffable about the world I live in and who I am.

It is a story about a life worth living.
