Artist Statement

Random Forest”, I aim to celebrate nature and diversity. The predominant colors of red, yellow, and green evoke the hues of changing leaves and symbolize the richness and variety of human experiences. The painting showcases the unique qualities and characteristics of each element within the forest, just as Bob Ross famously said, “Trees are different, just like people”, highlighting the importance of embracing inclusivity and celebrating differences. The process of creating this painting was one of experimentation and intuition, symbolizing the importance of an open mind and a positive attitude in fostering understanding and unity. I hope that this painting inspires viewers to appreciate the beauty and diversity of the world around them and strive for inclusiveness and positivity in their own communities.”
