I am a local freelance artist from the Buena Vista Township area with almost 40 years of artistic experience who specializes in oil and acrylic painting. I gravitated toward these two mediums for very different reasons. I thoroughly enjoy the ease in which oil paints can be manipulated allowing time to lay it exactly where it needs to be. And, even though acrylic paints dry incredibly quickly, they are very forgiving allowing me to go over them with changes and corrections. Recently, I have started experimently watercolor and have found a new respect for the medium. Whether painting with oil, acrylic or watercolor, my style of painting changes very little. My style is definitely more on the academic side with a softening of my edges. The subjects of my work usually include human and animal forms. I don’t believe that this has ever really been a conscientious decision on my part to choose to capture the live figures. It has been more of a revelation, in fact. Regardless the subject, it is my hope that the viewer will come away from my paintings with a “feeling” whether it be a calmness, empathy or even a fond memory.
