The Street Sentiment Series germinated while I was traveling through the Caribbean. Although people were poor, they exhibited gaiety and laughter through their music and love of colour. Many of the homes were painted in bright hues. The colours brought a smile to my face and seemed to represent new hope. I researched painted houses throughout the world where people used colour to enliven their homes. I used a black background in my work as a metaphor for all the hardships in their lives. I also worked on textured canvas and left in all the bumps on the roads and buildings. The houses are not architecturally correct in order to add a note of whimsy and optimism. My artistic philosophy is to create movement, mood and mystery with the sensual use of line and colour, I attempt to jolt viewers out of their comfort zones and make them feel as though they are involved in a journey into the scene. This piece is framed in a floating black wood frame.
