This thesis examines the creative process involved in the creation of a work of art; in this case, a painting. First, the artist creates a visual language, which becomes his instrument of communication. Then in the studio, the practical process activates visual representation of the language, communicated in brushstrokes. The visual image created through this process stimulates the artist emotionally, while imparting a sense of satisfaction to the viewer who understands that he has been brought into the aesthetic world created by the artist.
