Artist Website: Edward Bear Miller

Nude painting of a woman in water"Woman awash", Oil on canvas

I paint as a means to connect with the visible universe surrounding me and the less visible universe within me.  Often a pretty picture results, but painting pretty pictures is not my primary objective.  I am immersing myself in the stuff of existence, in color and contour and spatial relationships.  I process them and they merge with memories, urges, ideas of right and wrong and what is beautiful. --Edward Bear Miller
