I have been painting for about twenty years, oil on canvas or panel, usually landscapes, marine scenes, still lifes, garden scenes, and flowers. I use brushes and painting knives to achieve an almost 3-D feeling where the onlooker feels he can almost walk into the painting. Thick, textured oil paint contrast with flat areas to create this effect.
I also have recently started to paint in water color in a more realistic style.
