I have studied, taken workshops, painted with groups, done outdoor art shows, and exhibited in galleries for the past 30+ years.
Tropical art solutions:
I now provide new options to bring the Tropics to your home with custom size original canvases or prints on Aluminum.
If you have a favorite travel photo I will interpret the image reimagined as an impressionist landscape in exciting tropical colors to bring that WOW of happiness to your living space. You can enjoy that memorable moment every day. Go for a quick vacation to revive and relive that feeling you experience in the Tropics.
Many of my Tropical images are now available on medal for an affordable way to decorate those spaces that do not need valuable original art. Keep checking as new images will be introduced weekly.
I use many different mediums, but prefer large scale oil on gallery wrap canvas or acrylic on gallery wrap canvas. Many times the image is drawn with watercolor pencil then a first layer of acrylic and finished with oil paints. The images begin as layers of transparent washes which gives the image a depth and warm glow over the bright acrylic undertone. The undertone will show in many areas which helps unify the painting. The final sparkle is a few places of bright color to add flair.
I never know when the moment of inspiration will happen so it is important to have my camera with me at all times. It can be the shape of a tree, a pattern of shadows, or the amazing color of objects at sunset. Most of my paintings are the colors of sunrise or sunset. I love the way ordinary objects take on new colors at those times of day sorta of like the glow of a person's face at the happy moment of love, joy or inspiration. Painting has helped me be in the moment as I observe what's around me.
