Folk Art Painting

As my models usually don’t stand still for too long my paintings begin through the lens of a camera. I find the most beautiful animals around New England to photograph. Back in the studio my goal isn’t to make a painted copy, but to express my love of each animal. The feathers of a chicken, the wool of a sheep, the floppy ears of a pig, are some examples of the remarkable visual elements that I strive to enhance in order to capture the viewer’s attention and ultimately their emotional response, hopefully coming away with more of an appreciation of each animal’s individuality and spirit.
