Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Richard Wynne
Lake Elsinore, California, USA
I paint from need not greed. I have to express my self whether it is in a song or a painting. I wish I could paint more with my head rather than my heart. I envy some my artist friends who works are so serene. I tend to paint like a shark eating. Because of this many times I am dissatisfied with the finished painting. It would seem that I can never quite obtain the picture that’s in my head.My techniques change with my moods. I tend to use what ever I have in hand. Some of my works even have “ garment paint “. I seem to use many different materials on every painting. I like the effect of using many kinds of painting materials at the same time Some times I get into a color scheme fix as I tend to do anywhere from three to eight or more paintings at a time. If I work on only one painting I cannot stop actually getting to the point I can no longer see the oblivious mistake.
I admit to being influenced by Von Gough, the Impressionist School of Painters, El Greco, Roualt, and the “Black period” of Goya, as well as events in my life. I need to surround my self with beauty, whether the love of a son, music, or art. I really think life doesn’t have much meaning without beauty. I’m not sure how my work would be classified. People tend to say that I am an expressionist and perhaps they are correct. I just think I’m me.
Rather than ask me what I felt when I painted a picture I wish people would tell me what they feel on viewing my work. Once I have finished a painting my feelings are no longer important. If you like or hate my paintings then I’ve done something, but if you feel nothing, then I have failed.Perhaps I said too much about my self but maybe it helps people understand what motivates my work.
My son and I have moved from Thailand to the United States recently so he may continue his education.
