The mystery of luminosity, the fascination of the eye with color and the perception of space are the sources of my inspiration whether I am painting with traditional mediums or sketching with pixels on a digital screen. It is the ability to awaken a forgotten memory, to discover a new way of seeing the familiar or the power to evoke emotion, especially happiness and awe that I am certain is the triumph of painting. - Michael Anderson
