None of My Art is Sealed I Want it To Breathe and Move

I never seal my art with a varnish or sealer to "protect" it.
To me a sealer means the image is done and permanent.
I believe art is meant to flow and change while it interacts with the environment surrounding it.
By this I mean subtle interaction of the air and energy not taking ones fingers and manipulating the image.
Energy is never at stasis, it is in a constant state of flux as future creates past and past creates future, and my paintings are that.
My art is not meant to sit on top of the canvas, it is meant to intertwine with the fabric of the canvas and vibrate as one with it.
For this reason the power of the painting is much more intense when seen in person than to see a photographic image of it, a photographic image also seals the image as done.
But to view the painting in person is to view the art actually flowing into the room.
The art is alive.

The beautiful smear of exquisite color raked over a crisp white canvas, is well quite like heaven to me.
