‘Can you imagine that I started with Mandala’s first? I can not. After taking classes, exploring and trying different styles. I fell in love with contemporary abstract art. I love colors, interesting shapes, patterns and rich textures. And it does not attempt to represent and accurate depiction of a visual reality. For this piece I used grey in this painting as a nutral background. The gold, yellow and red colors explode right out the grey center. It is for me like an explosion. I feel a lot of energy. Energy to paint and go with the flow. That feeling is so great, forgetting everything around you. It is almost an addiction.’ @dianneaalbers
