The Wonder Of Childhood
Painting - Pastel On Paper
A young child with a look of excited anticipation that is present for that fleeting time of childhood innocence. I tried to capture this in this pastel drawing.
I am a traditional oil painter from Bucks County, PA, a wonderful area steeped with history. I am largely inspired by the oil painting of The Netherlands and Italy during the Baroque era, The Old Masters Caravaggio, Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Valezquez, and contemporary artists Steve Hanks, John Howard Sanden, Rob Liberace, and David Gray, to name a few, have influenced and informed my work. I maintain a contemporary practice dealing with contemporary topics; however, I am consumed by my fascination with oil paint, which has come to dominate my production. I work with significant emphasis on layering and underpainting. I have a strong appreciation for traditional subjects, and my work usually consists of landscape and figurative works.. I do not seek to make bold social commentary in my work, or to make statements about our rapidly changing world, so much as to preserve and foster an appreciation for something a little quieter: beauty, transcendence, purpose, and consolation.
