DIVERSITY in sound creates harmony. Diversity in size creates perspective. Diversity in color creates awareness. Diversity in thought creates progress.
quote by: Sharon Ponitz, Sarasota, Florida
I have painted different animal species coming together for a drink at a waterhole. The animals seem to understand that despite our differences we come together for our common needs as inhabitants of Earth. My painting technique breaks down all elements of the composition – animals, water, and earth – into visible stokes of paint, much as all matter can be viewed as a collection of atoms.
