“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 focused on printmaking, when I returned to painting I found that printmaking had influenced my technique. I’ve enjoyed playing with stencils, texture, and collage elements. I have also been indulging my inner landscape artist. Although my youthful inner artist was angt ridden, I’m 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. And lately I’ve been working on a painting series based on Newfoundland stamps–but actually inspired by Traffic Box art (see my Visual Blog: Barmp if You Like Art).
