Nothing Overlooked; Oil on Linen; 36″x48″
Welcome to my world.
Through my long career as a painter, a sense of place or interesting light on interesting objects was enough for me to decide to choose a subject.
Making paintings that represent the real world has engaged me from the beginning of my creative journey. Realism is not about reporting. It is about creating a believable fiction, which tells a story and engages the viewer.
Most of my paintings are oil on linen, although I do paint on other surfaces, such as paper and gessoed panels. Oil paint has tremendous depth and luminosity, which particularly suits my subject matter. Last year I went to Italy to study egg tempera with Fred Wessel, a modern master of the medium. Since then I have been combining egg tempera and oils in the same painting.
