I dream in color

It gets me in touch with my life philosophies, my feelings and my opinions. Sometime, my painting expresses a thought that I have no word for but I know how to translate it in to an abstract painting.
Creating art allows me to discover life and nature in an entirely different fashion. I get inspired from seemingly endless sources: music, colors, forms but mostly by nature.

I paint series of four to six paintings.

The series reflects the way I experimented the beauty of the different natural features of the subject
I use numerous layers of paint to give the painting a special translucent feeling
The only tools I use are my fingers.
