About "Spread Like a Fire "

Fire purifies gold, as fire tests faith.
I do not know the way of the fire, but He does.
I do not know the way of the road, but He does.
Faith is more precious than gold, gold perishes, but fire changes the nature of faith.

What matters most is how well you walk through the fire. (Charles Bukowski)

As hope kindles hope, millions more will find it. By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well - a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world. (George W. Bush)

'I am a wandering eye poet, an eclectic color fanatic. I want my paintings to leap off the wall and overwhelm you with their tactile, layered, chocolate thick, color and texture.' Leonie.e.Brown Artist

My work, like my life, is a refelection of my life's journey. A progression over time of learning how to deal with the past, live in the present and not fear the future. But what I've learned, is that good decisions are based in trusting God and the people He surrounds me with.

The process of learning and painting has a simbiotic relationship. My work is complicated, because I am by nature an analizer and thinker. I want to understand why, what and where, and within that processing, I try reflect the values which I live by: Believe in God, believe the best of others, forgive, move on.

But like the process of giving bith, change is a slow and painful process. It takes long. I've learned that it is ok to make mistakes. Sometimes the best wisdom and the best work flow out of those mistakes. The hardest part...is forgiveness.'

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the painting...as if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
