"To me, the extraordinary resides in the everyday moments in life. The moments where we stop, pay attention, and feel gratitude. All of us experience such moments and they transform us for the better. These instances of human life, personal reflection, and inspiration are what I love to capture in paint. Painting is my way of saying Amen visually, of saying I am in agreement with the beauty and mysetery of this world." ~ Michelle Dunaway
