26" x 20"
oil on canvas

There is a part of me that wants to understand what makes realism work on canvas. 
There is a part of me that wants to paint what I see, another part wants to express what I feel through color and imagery, there are so many different painters inside of me and I guess that's why my style has so many variations. It used to bother me because I see all these other artists that are consistent with their style and subject and I thought that's how I should be and I tried, but I just can't do it. These other artists inside of me have to be heard and won't let me rest until they are. Who am I to shut them up? It does make life interesting for me and (hopefully) for you too. :)


  1. Lovely painting. Don't worry, painting is individual, paint how you like and feel. That way you'll achieve the best paintings. This painting is great - keep going with it!!
