Sterling Edwards DVDs
"As a visual artist, I am constantly stimulated by the never ending variety of shapes and colors that surround us. It's not enough just to replicate what I see but rather to interpret. Combining form with color relationships and bold values I feel compelled to express my thoughts and emotions with strong, and often stylized shapes. What I feel about the subject draws me to the brush. I have painted the monumental to the insignificant, each with equal passion. It all begins with an idea and a burning passion to create and express. That is the true artist. Everything else is merely technique."
