Painting to me, is a place for dreaming. There exists the possibility that through experimentation, trial and error, and sheer tenacity, one can step into a world of magic. Each decision, whether it be to limit the hues, use a different painting tool, or consciously exaggerate one type of contrast over all others dramatically changes your view of the immediate subject and by extension your vision of reality, you are repsonsible for making all the rules in this most private of worlds.-Margaret Coe
