Heather Denson - A Fusion of Color
June 4, 2010 - July 30, 2010
As I paint, a door of transition opens. A culmination of dreams and waves of energy arise. Life's energy teases me at various levels. Some mornings I awake with certain colors or a design embedded in my psyche. Other times, while trekking through nature, I feel contentment and joy at all levels, emotions arise.
From a place of love, I ignite my candle and creativity. As I pick up my paint brush, I set an intention for each oil painting. My brush moves effortlessly as I apply the base colors; I am in my "flow." This is a surreal time as I experience various emotions. Some brush strokes are long and fluid, others short and sharp. Often times, I use my palette knife, creating thick textured lines and swirls. This dimensionality stirs a fire within bringing the piece to life. Some designs are vivid, others soft. As I etch my name into the piece, with my pallet knife, a deep and profound inner knowing is established. Painting voices my various layers of thought and emotion.
