Artwork of Mike Mahler.
I believe that art is in the process and the result. It is the process that enriches the artist while the result affects the viewer for better or for worse.
Art provides me an opportunity to meditate, to laugh and to think.
My paintings start with a simple brush stroke and evolve into a finished painting. Sometimes I have a plan and sometimes the painting appears as if out of the mist.
The paintings are time consuming but for me it is time is well spent because I am the first benefactor. If I produce something that is a joy to you, the viewer, then the better for both of us. --Mike Mahler
