“Painting” was my emphasis when I studied art at Andrews University in the 1980’s. At that time I was an Abstract Expressionist–no surprise there, so was everyone else! After a decade of focusing on printmaking, when I started painting again recently, I found that printmaking had influenced my painting quite a bit. I’ve enjoyed playing with technique and adding collage elements into my paintings. I have also been indulging my inner landscape artist. Despite my angst-ridden youth, I’m just very happy when I paint outdoors. Unfortunately, it takes me longer to paint then to produce a suite of prints, so my paintings are rarer. The featured image on this page (which I can’t seem to caption) is an acrylic board sketch that I painted in 1996 just as a rain storm was starting on the hill in Coley’s Point South, behind our family house. I’m very fond of it, so it’s not for sale, but I keep saying I need to do a larger version. Now that I see that sentence in print, I think I’ll start working on that painting during this rainy, snowy January.
