I'm fascinated by gems, jewels, and stones. Their color and glimmer is intriguing. This is my abstract view on a gem up close and personal. I'm also fan of Georgia O'Keeffe. Many of my paintings follow her passion of taking nature and zooming in as close as possible. It's a view we typically don't get in our every day lives. Cheers! #vangoPULSE
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.
