Jo Painting Cold Mountain, Nov. 12, 2014 -

 "When I begin a painting, I take inspiration from a beautiful light, color, form or texture and then continue working through observation.  But the painting soon takes on a life of its own.  More often, I end up choosing exaggerated and unexpected color relationships and compositions that reflect my emotional response more so than what I'm seeing in front of me.  I find it much more satisfying to be guided as much by my imagination as my eyes."
