Artist's Website Artworks by Anthe
I favor working in oils when I paint and this piece is one created from a journey to Meteora in Greece painted in oils on panel. This was a mystical place and painting it gave me a sense of peace once again as if I was there all over again. "Creating work is much like breathing to me, I do it because I must to stay alive. The creation of my art is a means for me to express my faith in God, glorifying him, and giving Him honor as well as releasing the feelings that are inside of me. I have always had a love of the Mexican & Greek Iconography. My travels to both countries have enabled me to incorporate their color sense into my imagery. I have felt the desire to convey multiple meanings in much of my work and to provoke thought. Nothing in life is exactly what it appears to be and art in my estimation should reflect the same as life, the unexpected.”
