NEW PAINTINGS STATEMENT
Many years ago I began my
art career as a painter and
eventually studied at Guilford College.While at Guilford I was drawn to original
printmaking (etching and
relief methods) and actually have been making prints for over 20
years, doing very little painting at this time.In the early part of 2013 I felt drawn to
return to painting and
done so with a new maturity and clarity that I know was not there
originally. I Believe the years spent focusing on prints
helped me develope a
greater awareness of technique and subject matter.
I'm sure I will continue to make prints but am enjoying the new
freshness I feel for painting. It is amazing
how an artist’s “signature”
will fellow from one medium to another when at peace with his art.I am honored and pleased
to make these
paintings available to view at this time.
