"Colors and perspective is always important, light
source and color forms the mood and explains the idea of the painting. I paint with the rules, and break them as long as the
painting is correct or works. I feel ideas are important as color and perspective. Without ideas an Artist could be repetional
and lack style. I like my paintings to contain one to several meanings or ideas."
