Painting allows me to connect with the ethereal spirit which surrounds us all. It allows me self expression of the beauty I see and feel where ever I go, and a way in which I may share my interpretation of this beauty with others.
For most of my painting career I’ve been inspired to paint one subject matter or another, and I still paint many of my paintings this way. But often now with watercolors on watercolor paper, I will initially apply a very wet application of a paint color or two to my paper, and see what is there, within the paint and paper. These paintings create themselves.
I enjoy sharing my work with others, and finding homes for my paintings. I hope they enrich others’ lives. –Martha .
