Kochan's Dallas series transcends mere cityscapes. With flattened planes of color and dreamlike figures, she creates a fantastical vision of the city. Her bold color choices, perhaps reflecting the complexities of urban life, are softened by blurred edges and diffused light, adding an air of mystery. The lack of detail in the figures invites viewers to wonder about their stories and destinations. This ambiguity is a key element – Kochan's art is an invitation to participate, to contemplate the passage of time, and to appreciate the ephemeral beauty of Dallas itself.

Allow yourself to be filled with inspiration, which in turn will translate into love, joy, wisdom, peacefulness and service.

Many of us feel that we must take a lot of classes to become a great artist.Of course, we need to study technique. But,  the truth is, we become on the right side of the brain when we are alone in our studios.
Turn all the phones off; Turn on quiet instrumental music; Begin by sketching or writing in a journal to decide what direction you want to go with your next series.  Spend a day drawing and planning so that when you go in the studio, you are ready to paint.
Great paintings start in our HEADS and HEARTS before we lift a brush.
