With each painting I strive to capture and convey a sense of an experience.  My goal being, to communicate a feeling of this certain time and place to the viewer.  I do this through the use of color, layers and brushstroke.  I record into a sketchbook thoughts, images and colors which relate to specific situations. It is these sketchbooks, as well as my memories, that are the starting point of each piece."  -Deborah Howard
