Whenever I have an idea I flesh it out on the canvas and start throwing color where I think it fits and works well. I tend to lean towards a warm palette and love vibrant reds and golds.
My inspirations include Jack Kirby, Reynold Brown and the great illustrator Robert McGinnis. Most of my work takes many, many, many hours. My philosophy is if I sit or stand at my easel long enough, usually something good will eventually come of it. I just never know how long I will be there.
Hello, I am 53 years old and live on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan. I grew up and have lived my entire life here. My education and formal training is in communication not the arts. Though I have always been told I have the ability to draw. Due to the seasonal nature of my job I have more spare time in the winter months and out of sheer boredom I decided to take a crack at painting. Over the last 4 years I have immersed myself in oil and the paintings you see here are the first steps in what I hope is a long and satisfying journey. Thanks for taking the time to visit my Vango sight and God Bless. Regards, Tony Elie
