My inspiration comes as I begin to paint. Each painting takes on a life of it’s own. A blank canvas presents limitless possibilities.  Painting breathes life into the constant shapes, colors and ideas flowing through my mind; expressing something words cannot.

From the smell of the oil, the texture of the paint, the delicate stroke or the spontaneous mix of color, painting is a stimulation of my senses.  The possibilities unfold as I combine colors and shapes inspired by everything around me. The finished work becomes so much more than an image hanging on a wall.  John Beard
