Historical Context:
"Becoming an artist was simply doing what came naturally. Expressing my love for light, color, and form is captured by the immediacy of pastel and acrylics. People frequently ask me how I choose the subjects for my paintings. Ironically, I feel the subjects choose me. I will paint almost anything as long as it speaks to my creative energy... I have evolved into a painter of shapes and allowed my creative energy to become the impetus behind the technique and spirit of my work." - John K. Harrell
