Sherry Hahn Vockel - Fine Art The Beauty of Pets - Custom Pet Portraits in Oil & Pastel
Welcome to my website. I love painting! What a great medium for expressing ideas through the language of color, form, design, composition and line. It is fun and exciting, frustrating and confounding; it demands that you push yourself further, observe even more closely; take bigger risks. In return it can give a glorious sense of accomplishment or walk you down a path of despair to the "WHAT was I THINKING?" syndrome. Needless to say,,,,,I've been down that path!
In this vast world of ours there will forever be subject matter to study, explore, paint and create; that which we see and that which is beyond what we see. Every sight, every idea that comes to mind is a springboard for more and more ideas and paintings. There is a great spirit of life everywhere; in nature; in every people and every nation; in those who came before us and those yet to be born. This "spirit of life" is my inspiration. As the late artist and teacher Robert Henri said, "Look for the spirit line that runs through everything".Creativity drives each and everyone of us in its own way. It is the nature of our species to create so I encourage you to grab your creativity by the hand and express it in whatever form feels right to you.............FOR THIS IS THE VERY BEST OF US.
