Art is not a skill contest, nor an innovation contest. Art is an honesty contest. If we can be precisely who we are, in the most intimate and candid and courageous way, we will start to connect to the universal. Our job as artists is to become powerfully personal in our work, and if we touch the source, the most central wound, the deepest of wells, then we actually touch the universal. — Ran Ortner, June 2012
I am an abstract and representational painter. I paint primarily in oil, but I also work in a variety of other media. This is my blog; my art site is at Marilyn Fenn Studio, and you can purchase my art at Marilyn Fenn Shop.
