Spent a lovely and productive morning in the studio yesterday and put the finishing touches on my latest painting, "Goats Who Stare at Men"... I've been meaning to paint this old guy for a long time and the painting flowed effortlessy from start to finish (I LOVE when they do that). I feel as if I accomplished my goal of trying to capture Basil"s unique personality and the smile never left my face the whole time I was painting. I wished they all were like that!
I am a classically trained realist painter based on the traditions of the Old Master's style of painting. I paint to capture the emotional impact and drama that occurs somewhere in between the shadows and the light.
