“Maine in the Morning
“Opening Night Jitters”
I usually paint from photographs in the Old Master Style using monochromatic colors to establish my values prior to tackling the main picture.
What inspires me to continue to paint is the wide wonderful world we live in. I have a belief that we all “need a reason to get up in the morning”. What vision will I wake up to tomorrow that will inspire me to pick up my paint brush?
My hope is that by viewing my Art you gain an admiration for this more traditional style of painting.
