Now being involved with the Gallery – I am in awe of the talent of all the artists and craftsmen – noting that we are all varied in talents. There is something there for everyone.
For me, my motivation and inspiration for painting came out of desperation and the need to feel productive and challenged.
Creativity sometimes lies dormant for a long while – it is only now that I am older(and hopefully wiser) that I have taken the time to TRY and develop something that speaks to people and perhaps inspires.
So, a few years ago I got an old sheet, laid it across my lap, and with paint and canvas, and some gospel music in the background – proceeded to create- needless to say I went through a lot of canvases and paint before achieving what i thought was worthwhile. My mind had a vision but it took awhile for the brush to understand it.
Always intent on trying new mediums, varied subjects my paintings will all be ART FROM THE HEART.
Janet will be sitting in the gallery on June 21st if you would like to meet her and discuss art!
