A blank canvas, an empty sheet of paper… How does one begin?
How does one know when one is done? Both the joy and the challenge of being an artist… Art is my voice for telling stories. Both time and concept-oriented, my ideas come from day-to-day observations, attempting to record the present moment in my original artwork.
Color and composition are important components in my work. I use color to enhance a mood – whether it is to foster reflection or to energize. Composition also reinforces the message I am trying to convey through the repetition of shape or movement. An artist has the wonderful opportunity to create work from the beauty of their surroundings.
My passion is art and there is nothing I love more than the challenge of that blank sheet of paper… - Marcia Babler
