Painting is a story without end, a mystery without any clues. The blank page is infinite, a puzzle longing to be solved. Color provides weight and dimension. Line and shape spark energy, becoming characters, breathing life into the canvas. Light and shadow soften the focus, creating mystery. Questions remain; the end is only just out of sight.
