The eyes have one language everywhere. - Romanian Proverb
I like quiet places like going for walks and sleep that is were my inspiration and ideas come from when I am completely zoned out from the outside. When I draw portraits I tend to exaggerate the eyes (which is my favorite part to draw). I have just got back into art beginning this year and am creating work in watercolor. I love watercolor because it is something you cannot fully control you just let it happen, so each art work is unique element of randomness and process that cannot be fully controlled which lets you become loose in work and fully express yourself rather than focus on an end product. Like one of my mentors told me once when I had a hard time capturing a portrait: 'start over again and draw the ugliest drawing you've ever done', and surprisingly that became one of my favorite works.
To me art is self expression, there are feelings that cannot be described by words or logic so I have to put it on paper :)
