The interpretation of the intent
Itís all very well having a passion - having a driving force, out of my hands - that compels me to paint and draw; but what does it mean to others?
I donít expect anyone to understand completely, I donít understand completely; but I hope that there are elements of the paintings that perhaps speak to others in different ways.
For the painting to work it has to operate in many languages, to be able to communicate to as many people as possible.
Sometimes the reaction is one of shock or horror, this is okay, as any reaction is better than no reaction.
Though I would be a stranger to the truth if I said undying praise, abject flattery and a degree of supplication arenít heart warming.
