A Humble Brushstroke

 12-15-2020 How art itself is awakened in a humble brushstroke, making the surface of the support vibrate, printing a dynamic movement in the eyes of the viewer, making the barriers of distance jump to tell us from the underground texture: “what you feel is emotion, not you are ashamed, do not look for an explanation”, this work is an example, brilliant. Victor Lopezrua The above quote is a response for one of my latest, Stirring Series paintings on Instagram. I was very humbled with his kind words. While I thanked him for his gracious comment, it had me thinking about that humble brushstroke.  It does awaken a stirring within us and it is that stirring that brings about an awakening which begins with a single stroke.  It takes a level of faith to create, to trust the process.  It takes guts sometimes to make that first brushstroke. But once it's done, the creating can begin. It arises from that first stroke illuminating the first idea, then moving forward adding stroke upon stroke
