The Game of Their Lives. All Rights Reserved. I often try to paint with a limited palette to capture fauna and flora with the camouflage and habitat of their surrounds. Feathers and fur are wonderful! Multiple photographs are used to compose a narrative scene capturing mood and color. My love of the outdoors takes center stage and sometimes a dynamic day or night sky provides tone for the background. Golden sunrises or a contrasting shadowy sunset plays on the elements of many of my sometimes-comical composition.
Each painting should make the viewer pause and inject his own storyline to the scene captured in a single frame. I continue my art education almost daily via online. I love to watch other artist paint. Developing a background in art history is essential to see what paintings survived the wrath of critics and the attention of collectors.
