Oil Paintings by Paula Martiesian
 
"My thought process is visual. I don't think in words and ideas and then translate to images.
I think in imagery, space, color and line. As I progress in painting, that mode of visual thinking becomes stronger and my painting becomes stronger because of it."
- Paula Martiesian
