I am a colorist. It is color that inspires and moves me. Composition and subject matter are also very important. I can spend more time on those elements than color, but it is the colors that I am passionate about. It is color which grabs the viewer more than anything else. It has everything to do with the energy and passion within the painting. Whether a painting is a still life, nude or landscape, it is basically a two dimensional surface covered with color, conveying the illusion of reality. Art is teaching the important inner reality beneath the surface.
