I paint because I love to create. I feel the purpose of creating art is to share something beautiful and allow others to see something only the artist has perceived. The impressionist style of short, thick strokes capturing the essence of the subject, rather than the total detail is quite exciting to do. The colours are applied side by side with as little mixing as possible. Hand painted oil on canvas art using traditional painting techniques which are applied using a tablet, stylus, and Artrage 3 oil software.
