I will typically paint from a photograph that I have taken if I am painting in acrylics. When I do a dirty pour painting I go to my collection of colors and put together what inspires me. I have a list of favorites color combinations and I am constantly adding new ones.
A few decades back I got a correspondence degree in art, before it was common to do self-study degrees. I'd worked primarily in pen and ink, and oils. Life took over and art was pushed to the wayside. Jump forward to 2016 and I was inspired again. I have created two hundred plus pieces since then, primarily in acrylics and watercolor, and I have no intention of stopping any time soon.
Bright colors inspire me the most. I enjoy the turquoise colors of the Caribbean and the blue of the sky. I will start with no particular subject in mind, and by the time I've painted the sky, the painting develops.
My subjects range from acrylic dirty pours to soft watercolors. I do landscapes and abstract pieces. I've worked in pastels, watercolor, pen and ink, acrylic, pencil and digital art. I find it all fascinating. I think you will find something you will want on your walls at one of my stores. I have several internet based sales platforms to choose from.
