I have realized that the shape of these paper balls are of utmost importance in regards to their visual power. It is most evident in this painting where the shape is quite drab yet the rendering is confident. No matter how well it is painted, it is still uninteresting.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
