Rachel Schlueter- Art and Meaning

'Rain Cat' Oil on Masonite 6"x8"

What is the meaning of doing art for you?

I feel there are opposing forces in our world, they are love
and fear. Love expands and fear contracts. Making art for
me is an act of love. It is my belief that this creative act of
love contributes to the expansion of consciousness. When
I am painting I am expressing my potential as a human.
Art is a gift and being an artist is a privilege. When I show
up for my art I see it as my contribution to something larger.
It is for this reason I encourage the creative process in others.

Robyn thanks for checking in. Rachel does have a way with her cats of catching them in very cat like poses.

I meant 'capturing', because Rachel you do capture the essence of cat.
