"When art catches your eye, it will catch others as well." I've found my first response to a painting to be a lasting one. This is an energetic, color against color oil painting. Utilizing thick layers of color it is very easy to recognize as an original work of art. I love the South Carolina coast, and it shows in many of my works. Please feel free to "Favorite" this work and check out my other oil paintings listed here on Vango. "Follow" me is a good way to quickly find newly uploaded artwork.
Art and creativity has always been part of who I am, but I only really started to focus on painting full time at the age of 50, following a long and successful career in advertising. As an artist, I love working in many different styles and exploring a wide range of subject matters. The beauty of online galleries lies in their eclectic art collections, and without the pressure of brick and mortar galleries dictating what I paint, I am free to paint whatever inspires me. Painting for me is an experience of falling headlong into inspiration. An image I come across will stick in my head and refuse to leave until it finds its way onto the canvas. My work is visually diverse, and there are very few painting styles that don’t inspire me in someway or another. My paintings range from abstract and cubist, to impressionistic and realistic. Most recently, I’ve been inspired by quirky and retro TV shows to tell a story through my paintings. The lighting and cinematography of these shows inspire me to paint dramatic moments in time, and I create unique, intriguing characters that are open to interpretation.
