Art is life's metaphor. Choice of subject matter, as well as one's disposition during execution and presentation of a work, affect artist and viewer alike. Art can affirm, uplift and celebrate the Life-Spring from which it emanates; it can also deny, degrade and denounce the same: Light or darkness? Day or night? Life or Death? Choose.
As for me, I choose life; my images, both watercolor and photograph, are a visual expression of that choice.
