Paintings by Rod Heiss
Reception:

ARTIST STATEMENT
I am afraid of fear!
The moment before I paint, the feelings flood my thoughts.  Will the painting turn out?  Am I using the right colors? Will I mess up again?  These thoughts only last a few seconds.  Then the need and excitement to paint takes over.  I break through the fog of fear and begin to paint.  Now there are no worries of what people think or how they will react to the work.
The way I paint is a statement to myself of not to be afraid.  My art reflects this.
I am afraid of fear!
