The Artist Says:


Painting is much like meditation. It is being present and keenly aware, but at the same time, letting go and trusting in all you have learned thus far. Whether it is described as "following the muse", "feeling the hand of God on yours", or "being in the flow", it is something indefinable, yet undeniable. The following quote sums it up quite well, “We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too.”




Biography




Gaye Sekula is an award-winning American artist known for her broken color technique and expressive brushstrokes.  She feels emotion and liveliness are best captured in simplicity and finds vignettes most suitable to her style. Gaye feels a personal obligation to share the things she has learned in her studies over the years and offers classes and workshops in person and online.  Gaye lives and maintains a studio in rural Bexar County, just outside of San Antonio, Texas.
 
ARTIST STATEMENT
Painting is much like meditation, it is being present and keenly aware, but at the same time, letting go and trusting in all you have learned thus far. Many artists have tried to describe  it with phrases such as  "following the muse", "feeling the hand of God on yours", or "being in the flow".  Regardless, it is really something undefinable, yet undeniable. I feel the following quote sums it up quite well: “We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too.”
