"Captain Charlie's Porch" (oil on canvas)
First comes the idea, the vision, the creative voice. Then the mind gives wings to that voice and vision. The soul moves through the hands and eyes to create and communicate that which is intrinsically dynamic and abstract. In my experience, art is like science with soul. Both the artist and the scientist explore the how and why of things, and the artistic process is just as grounded as the scientific process—but the artist, unlike the scientist, has the potential for true alchemy.
