My digital paintings reflect what I respond to. There is joy in the arrangement of design elements and colors within a composition. And there is beauty of shape and form. Familiar, comfortable objects like fruit or books express the moment, but also become something timeless – frozen forever in the picture. Things I respond to – memories of places I grew up with and visited in Columbus. It is awareness of response: what do books on a shelf become for us? Symbols, memories, feelings. Together with the highest level of my ability the still-life objects in this image make this work meaningful.
