Why do I paint? A quote I once read, “Artists don’t choose to be Artist, they have to be Artist”, states a fact that art chooses you… you don’t choose art. I have always had that passion to create something. A blank canvas just brings an excitement to me, like a blank wall that is void of beauty that cries to have that void filled. I do not limit myself to subject matter. It may be what catches my eye or something I feel needs an introduction to the ever passing eyes. Sometimes it is the subject itself, the textures, the contrasts of light and dark or a color scheme. I paint in oil on linen covered board which I prepare myself to fit my subject. My work will always be in a realistic style. My studies over the years of the “Old Masters” has patterned the methods and styles of each of my paintings.
