Statement

 

    When I paint an abstract painting my goal is to create harmonious color and a design that I have not seen before. Once I succeed at creating what I consider to be a beautiful and somewhat original work I feel the painting is finished.

      To me painting is playing and inventing at the same time.  It is also work that requires intensive looking.

                                                                                          Margaret Brown Halsey
