'Golden Pond', was painted recently. I've been wanted to paint with metal paints for awhile, so this has been o my personal wish list. Gold paint is tricky to paint with, it doesn't play nicely with others. I've had a memory or a thought of a golden lake, I'm not sure if this was a dream or real but non the less I had to paint this. 'Golden Pond', is a vision of peace, tranquility, and most importantly... Heaven. The place we go to rest, where everything is as it should be. A perfection we couldn't possibly know. 'Golden Pond', is most likely a dream but I would like to believe it is real and my vision of such a place is both a dream and reality.
I stumbled into painting some would say late in life, yet I had always searched for a positive way to express myself, however fleeting. Painting rapidly became an obsession as I soon realized that what I had been looking for wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This creative means of expression didn’t have to be beautiful and it certainly didn’t have to make sense. It was most often spontaneous, surreal, and subconscious. This style of painting as I now understand it has been vividly explored and technically termed as Abstract Expressionism. However, painting in the moment is whatever I need it to be, regardless of the term. I do not feel the need to follow any artistic rules or format as this would cross grain dramatically with what I am trying to accomplish with my art.
