Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR

Painting

I paint in oil. My paintings are representational and cover a range of subjects, including landscape, still life, portrait -- in fact, anything that stays still long enough. I often use photos for reference and sometimes make up scenes by combining photos or grabbing an image off the internet to put in the painting. It's art, so anything goes! I want my work to tell a story, stir a memory or strike an emotion. To achieve this objective, I like to paint what may be familiar to the viewer, like a mall parking lot at sunset. I hope you stop by to see my work on the Studio Tour.
