  • Fine arts:1500+paintings/20 exhibitions

It is my opinion that the most profound paintings are not merely pictures, but rather pure energy transferred through the artist in an emotionally charged state.  The artist acts in a three dimensional realm to purge him/herself in a visceral state to express intense emotion derived from the state of mind which exists at that moment stemming from a deeply significant event.  A successful painting should impart strong feelings, even if the painting is completely abstract... or it has no worth.  The energy conveyed and pure intent is stronger than a pretty cliche.  Technique comes easy yet secondary to raw energy.
