Violet Baxter

I want to grasp the elusive, transparent light with color. I love reflective light, night lights, daylight, reflections, and the state of mind this brings to me. I like the thought that anything I look at, no matter how mundane, can reach a kind of visual poetry. I enjoy subtlety, quietness, looking out, and from that looking within myself.  In these things, when expressed through painting and drawing I experience the power of being here and alive.
