Those who journey can easily understand,
The more they see the more they'll learn,
The more that they will be.
So this I swear to you, and this I swear to me,
I'll never rest till I've seen all I can see.

About John Faherty

John Faherty: Artist, Philosopher, Weirdo
“I love to paint, dabble and push pigment around until some image in my head becomes recognizable (maybe).  Pushing pigment is a better description for what I do with colors than painting. It seems the image is already there. I'm just pushing around bits of color until it is easier to see.

My medium varies greatly from acrylic paint, to spray paint and even plastic resin and natural plant and animal materials. Art has a beat, tempo or rhythm and the movement of brush or fingers against the canvas with the textures of materials beneath and between lets me feel the process of creation in a way similar to the way a guitarist feels the pluck and vibration of the strings between the skin and instrument.

I have a passion for expressing what I feel an event or the memory of a place looks like without the fear of them not matching some photograph.

Discovering new ways to express my thinking and sharing the results with the world in a creative way inspires me to continue to explore who I am and what life is all about through the visual and tactile tools that birth has given me.”

I am going to try, (really I intend to do that this time) to improve my web presense and keep a more up to date site.
