Note to my readers: Candy only allows for the truth to be told. She does not abide by lies, fabrications or exaggerations (even those to "make a point"). This is as true in our lives as in our art. Candy does not allow me any poetic license. This is assuredly the case with my poetry, for example, as she will not allow me to craft an image of something or allude to an event that did not occur. Consequently, as she has authorized everything herein, everything herein is absolutely true, as in the Truth. NB: In very few cases, names have been changed to protect the innocent relatives of the guilty. And lastly, before we begin, here is Candy's own voice:
"To my mind, Truth is the reality that we all experience; Beauty is the sensuous appreciation of the sublime; and Art represents both in a manner most satisfying to the senses. I feel that representational art provides us with visceral knowledge of the primeval emotions embedded in our actual experiences."
"Exceptional beauty inspires me, as manifested in nature, whether this takes the shape of a glorious flower, a magnificent naked form, a sleek animal, or the freedom of colors merging in an abstract. I paint what I see, and I paint what I don’t see, that which is in my mind’s eye, to render images that intuitively satisfy the voluptuary in all of us."
I live for Art.
I live for Truth.
I live for Beauty.
