The most important communication I can make now is to express the natural beauty God has given to us all. When people drive through the stunning landscape where I live in Bandera County they see some of the most beautiful vistas anywhere in Texas. They are changed by that beauty. They become better people. This is what I am hoping for with my art. I hope that through the abstract combinations of colors, shapes and textures in my art, the public will have a similar reaction to that drive in the country and be moved by God’s visual gifts to humanity.
