What is art ?

Art for me is a form of visual communication, a "visual poetry". 

I enjoy "making rhymes" that may resonate with viewers. 

Creation of my art involves three faculties: heart, for love of the subject, mind, for creating a meaningful composition, & hands, to use a technique developed with years of study and practice.
