I would like to share a quote from my wise and wonderful mentor Richard McKinley, for my painting, The Tides of Humanity.
“When I look at the painting, I see you Kim – The creative soul looking into the vastness of the open sea of artistic possibilities, feet grounded in the shifting sands of mankind’s earth being washed and caressed by an ocean of something more.” – Richard McKinley
“When I’m not sure what I want to paint, I rely on my underpainting to give me inspiration. It excites my senses to watch the colors flow to and fro as I move the surface. It satisfies my desire for freedom. I often make a game of it to decide where I want to go next. Like when I was a child playing with a ouija board, using unconscious thoughts and feelings to guide your hands and fingers – so I did that with this painting. First it led me to a waterfall which you can still see, especially on the upper right side of my painting; then the water parted and it led me to her– a lovely young girl looking back at me!”
