HARRIET MOORE BALLARD
The inspiration for my paintings comes from two places: the domestic home life where I eat, sleep and manage my life; and my connections with nature which shapes and patterns my life. The two are blended and cannot be separated.
I start a painting with a fragment, a beginning statement, or a sketch. After that, there are no boundaries, and no expectations of what will happen.
The painting is finished when there is nothing more to say. Of the finished piece, all I know is that it records a conversation in time.
