Creative Process:
Art is both a freedom and a restraint for me as well as a constant source of pleasurable problem-solving and spiritual exploration. It never gets boring. The more I delve into it, the more I realize I need to learn and the more I try to push the boundaries. Inspiration comes from my faith that we are all born with spiritual elements that we sometimes forget we have and therefore do not express as we travel through our lives. The elements of the human soul I refer to: Gratitude, Humility, Love, Peace, Courage, Joy and Strength. This is what I paint in abstracted ways but within color focus . Joy is primarily yellow in my work; gratitude is green; humility is indigo; love is red; peace is blue; courage is orange and strength is violet. When a person is attracted to my red works, I know they are unconsciously remembering love and/or want to be surrounded by love. This is what feds me and sustains meLolly Owens is an award-winning artist whose work has been widely exhibited in group shows around the country as well as in Florida.
