Artist: Beth Bojarski "What Lies Beneath" Painting



"My ideas are developed as I paint which is why I enjoy the process so much. I work to create a piece that has multi layers...a strong visual image combined with an underlying story that is ever changing. I want my paintings to make you laugh. I want my paintings to make you feel guilty for laughing. I want my paintings to stay with you when you leave. I want my paintings to make you giggle in church when you recall one. I want you to see the face of your neighbor in my work. I want you to see reflections of yourself in my work... because I see myself in each piece and it makes me smile."
