Born On A Blue Day 4"x4" acrylic
"Born On a Blue Day" is a title of a very interesting book by Daniel Tammet. He shares his insights growing up as an autistic savant. When I painted this, I thought about that book and how he saw numbers as colors. I don't see things like that, but I believe we all have a unique way of looking at the world. Artists generally express and share their particular way of seeing through their art. It is a combination of the eye and the hand. The way I handle the brush is one voice and the colors and shapes I am drawn to, is another voice. I better stop before I reveal how weird I really am!
