The art I produce has changed over the years. As a child you learn just what a great big messy bit of fun art is, and with luck, you never lose that sense of fun and achievement.
As you grow older you develop the way you communicate, both verbally and visually and this sense of self can be a help or hinderance in your artistic endeavours.
Art, which believe me, is not an easy subject, to produce anything of any note is very difficult, and is a highly developed way of communicating an idea for everyone.

These ideas are not necessarily a comment on society, although they can be, but a way of communicating what the artist sees in any given subject.
Hopefully, this translates and communicates to the viewer a feeling or a vision, a way of feeling or seeing something in a way the viewer had not thought of before.
I paint landscapes, but I abstract the landscapes and use it to evoke a feeling in someone. They are not literal translations of what I see in front of me, but more a view of what I was seeing made me feel at the time. The difficulty is how I portray that feeling in paint that makes you also feel something.
