“This Is As ‘Still’ As ‘Life’ Should Get” 36” x 48”
Mixed Media/Acrylic on Canvas
"I see the world around me through my own pair of spectacularly goofy glasses. My mission is to accentuate the positive and always resist the usual. My paintings are places and objects I have created from my imagination, and they are my attempt to simplify our complex world. Creating them brings joy to my life. Sharing them is my way of offering joy to others.
My canvas is my place for me to play, explore, and free myself of the confines of reality. And, as I title my pieces I make light of my kooky world, merely as an attempt to invite the viewer in to visit and spend time borrowing my glasses, which, by the way, are heart-shaped and rose-coloured." - Michele Smeulders
