Art Description

Painting: Oil on Other.

I am fascinated with movement no matter how subtle or small. A simple act of walking can be so expressive of someone's personality. For me it is more interesting to show a glimpse of a subject in order to make one wonder what more lies beneath. I utilize the space in the background through the use of broad sections of color and marks to add to the feeling of going forward. My work combines these expressive ideas with my classical realism training in order to create a style of my own. The actual material that the piece is painted on is hardboard panel that I have cradled in order to give the surface lasting protection.
