I start my paintings with a reference photo. This is purposeful because I want my paintings to convey an abstract form of a real place. Places that are here on earth yet not here. They are right where we are but we can't see them. A different plane of existence. I use vibrant colors such as shades of purple, yellow-green and bursts of bright pink. This keeps my paintings fun and lighthearted, which I believe the universe intends for us to view life as.

Man suffers only because he take seriously what the gods made for fun. --Alan Watts
