I work in traditional oil paint with a limited palette specific to each work. I read somewhere that “painting is just putting the right color in the right place.” Sure, there are many things to consider and decisions to be made (subject, composition, color palette, medium, lighting, brushes, etc.) but in the end—for me— it’s just an artist in front of the canvas putting the right color in the right place. I work from multiple sources to complete each piece. I have been drawing off and on my whole life and am primarily self-taught. I find inspiration from everything from everyday life to Italian, French and Dutch masters.
