"For me, the spirit and mystery of painting lie behind the image, below the brushstrokes, and above ones considered thoughts. A good painting is a happening; connecting the artist and viewer to a world within the soul. Using oil paint as language, I try to make my paintings evoke beauty and personality. My inspiration comes from real life situations and mental photographs. The final result is essentially a collage of my thoughts of reality in spirits. I work and rework the illusion of applying layers of line, form, and color. I know the painting is complete when the myriad of broken color reveals my full intentions and ideas of beauty and personality.'' -Noah
