With my abstract work, I concentrate on creating unique compositions that focus on form and color. Most of these small abstract works are created wet on wet, allowing the paint to blend together as I apply it to the canvas. Mostly, these are fun pieces where I can explore color and composition. The titles are thought of on the spot, without any premeditation.
Nathan Rhoads is an artist working in Portland, Oregon. He earned his BFA in 1998 from Point Loma Nazarene University. His primary medium of choice is oil. Nathan's work ranges from abstract to representational. He is a live painter, creating beautiful works of art on the spot at events. He takes on a lot of commissioned projects too, and lately, has been painting beautiful pet portraits. The spirit realm is his muse. Most of his work deals with the spirit realm whether it be representational or abstract in nature. When not painting, he spends time with his 2 boys and dog exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest. His favorite art quote is from Chuck Close: "Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work."
