Terry Meyer - As an artist, I connect with the energy and motion in the environment around us. My artwork serves as a conduit for expressing that connection. It is the assimilation of this spirit that inspires my work. Within the medium of painting, watercolor provides a flow and softness that is almost meditative as I translate this energy through brushstrokes. Oils are more kinesthetic; I can feel the substance of the paint and its power, translating the environment around me. My preference is for organic, earthy color that is more contemplative and healing. My work often evokes an emotional response from viewers, feeling a spiritual connection, drawn from their own personal experiences.
