Style & Quality
I strive to have the best quality possible. Style is another thing, many say I have it but never ask my children what they think.
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." - Maya Angelou
My paintings are extremely special to me, I really don't care if I ever sell them. Hopefully they will bring the kids a fortune when I'm gone. I feel like crying when they leave but I'm happy when they find a loving home.
I'm a versatile artist. I can't say what my style is or even if I have one. I like to paint with Oils or Acrylics - I like every medium and sometimes I'll throw everything in... really I mean THROW. Sometimes I use a brush other times a pallet knife, putty knife or my fingers.
I create every day - It may be oils one day acrylics the next. Graphics may be Saturday, Photography Tuesday and Product production and shipping on Friday. Market Day is on Saturday morning but other than that I have no schedule just a daily "to do" list and the list is long.
Paintings can and have taken a year and a half to complete so we can get very close sometimes. Research is one of those things I believe in.
Since I paint on just about anything, the type paint and what it is on will be specified on the ordering information page for each painting.
Every painting is sealed with the proper sealant for the medium used- for protection and sometimes more just because it adds to the work. My paintings are usually glossy since I like to see the texture. Some like the allegories, butterfly guys and some of the redheads are a lower sheen since I tend to shy away from texture with these.
As always if you have any questions just contact me.
