Artist’s Statement

Small acrylic landscape paintings by Steve Miller

What I love about painting is that I can follow several different trails and allow the painting process to tell me the story.

By reading the tealeaves of various brushstrokes, shapes, and colors, subject matter develops organically through self-reflection, visualization, and trial-and-error.

I like to see what my head, heart, and hand can produce. By painting from imagination, I’m able to discover new places, project my thoughts and feelings, and develop new narratives pertaining to my personal experience.

“I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.” – Jackson Pollock
