Moments in Colour:
An Exploration of Experience Through Colour

This collection of paintings is an exploration of colour, form and line-- but most of all, of intuition. The paintings were done without planning the final product. In this way, they are a raw expression of the feeling or the memory tapped at the moment of creation. They are two dimensional slices of being- expressions of inspiration.

"We have the ability to sense and act directly, without thought. This ability is inherent and instinctual, but has been buried deep by education and acculturation, usually not surfacing except in moment of great stress or perceived danger. Yet it is there if we listen. Its voice may be quieter and less dramatic than the loud clamor of reactions and opinions, but it has an intelligent persistence that can guide us.

-From Life, Paint, Passion, Michell Cassou

Creation:
October 2004

Inspired, interestingly enough, by a snow storm that left the landscape of Driftwood canyon 100% covered in snow. A walk that day was like strolling through a black and white photograph, whith the contrast turned way up. The absolute whiteness of the scene, and the brilliance of the light reflected in the countless microscopic snow crystals left a residue of the spectrum's brilliant colours within me as I takled this large canvas.
