Artist Statement:

I created an art piece that symbolizes what I feel when I create. The paint bottle spilling over into a large unknown hole, shows the artistically challenging plunge that is taken when designing a piece. I created my art with a basic sketch and then with watercolors. My goal was to make a painting that would intrigue the viewers and have a deeper meaning than just a pretty picture. Overall, I believe I was successful in bringing the vision I had to life and exploring new techniques with my own style of art.
