I love to paint!

Sara Reinstein Becker

I love painting. Being an artist has been a unexpected journey for me, one where my work seems to have a life of it's own. With the barrage of digital information coming at us so quickly, the process of painting and choosing what I want to see has been refreshing for me. With color I can create space, I can create emotion. That is where I begin and then eventually imagery starts to emerge.

My process is a meditation on color and texture.  I construct my paintings intuitively, alternately applying, sanding and re-applying layers of acrylic paint.  The resulting image, with its deep visual texture and luminous colors, convey the serenity and simplicity that are my primary goals

Painting is a way for me to express myself. It allows me the freedom to be playful or serious—whatever emotion that I wish to express at a given moment. My desire is for the paint to flow effortlessly, clearing my mind while I work. Serenity and simplicity are my primary goals.  A graphic designer by trade, my art plays with proportion and composition, bringing my design sense together with the expressiveness of the paints I use.

I love to discover beauty,

I love to paint.

I found i could say things with color and shapes that i couldn't say any other way . . . things i had no words for.         -georgia o'keeffe
