I've been interested in 1900 style artwork since college and I realized what single factor was going to predominate. Tonalism. Color mixing that keeps the palette very subdued in a certain color direction. So in 2004, my oil paintings took on that effect, as though we're looking through amber glasses at a landscape. My current aim to integrate into Arts and Crafts revival homes- fine paintings in crafted frames - landscapes that evoke emotion and avoid bluntly naturalistic color. Some people think my work looks photographic. Yes, I use my camera. I change things, I combine things, I take the color in a whole new direction. I would like the viewer to realize that I achieve a stunning glowing effect to my canvases today, far beyond the capabilities of "a photograph." I invite you to proceed to in the blog section to check out some particular techniques I use to achieve that effect.
