Transformation takes us from sketchy beginnings to a beautiful place.
We need to set goals and know what we want our picture to end up looking like. We can't just start throwing paint at a canvas and expect to end up with a picture of a beautiful relaxing place that we want to go to. Which is much like our life. Everything we do has to have an end in mind so that choices we make take us to that place.
"Our life is the result of our thoughts and what we focus on and give our attention to."
Knowing where we are going and what we want for the end result to look like, this process is something we have to cultivate in every aspect of our lives.
Too many children are looking with a narrow focus onto the mobile phone screen, or ipod and many are not seeing the natural surrounds.
Even on road trips the eyes are on a screen in the back seat and often they only come into focus on the surrounds when the golden arches pop up into view. Through art works in the home and office of the natural surrounds I want to bring the outside in and help all to connect to the beautiful landscape because we are part of the creation and we need it as much as it needs us.
My desire is that we bring the outside into our homes and work places so we can be continually inspired by its spirit.
It is my prayer that my paintings will connect with and encourage your heart as well, hopefully convey an authentic expression of love for the surrounds and share in the national spirit of Australia.
