Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Milford, Delaware, USA
My family and I grew up on a farm in Delaware. We grew or raised most of what we ate. Everyone had his or her role. I handled the chickens – in that I plucked their feathers and gutted them. So, I became pretty intimate with foul in a somewhat dark manner from the start. I was never one for painting pretty pictures; instead, I hope to create ones that stir the emotions
Using a traditional technique known as glazing, I build up thin layers of paint. In the past, I used oils a lot, but switched to acrylics, which, I find, create stronger colors, have a soft matte finish, and allow me to build up the layers more quickly.
Ravens hold a special meaning for me. They are the legendary Guardians of the Tower of London, from which I lived a few minutes’ walk for several months back in 1998. London captured my heart and will always feel like a second home, and I still miss my walks down to the Tower to visit the ravens.
