Painting and Me

1975127_10152513466050950_6118890019479582559_n-1I’m a self-taught painter. While, I’ve closely observed the inspiring beauty of nature and thousands of paintings by talented amateurs and accomplished masters,  everything I know about painting was learned while facing down the daunting challenge of a blank canvas. Bottom line, I’m more stubborn than white.

In 50 some years of painting, I’ve worked in a variety of styles. My first love was landscape painting. As a teenager, my pallet was relatively naturalistic. Over time my colors have gone wild. At times, I actually try to tone them down, but the muses have other ideas. A fellow artist observed: “You paint like an “Island man.”
