Dance the Night Away
A scientist by training, and an artist by choice, I believe that identical skills are necessary for both art and science. Art requires a knowledge of technical information and science requires creativity. Both sides of the brain come into play for an artist to be successful: technical and creative aspects of the painting are both essential in developing an emotional response in the observer . In my own paintings, I look for value, composition and simplicity. Subject matter is also important, but the power and resulting statement of my paintings comes from the technical interpretation of the work. I strive towards technical proficiency without losing the freshness of the painting, no matter what the subject. My inspiration comes from my travels as well as everyday scenes and my goal for each painting is to capture and preserve a unique moment in time. The painting shown here, Dance the Night Away, comes from a photograph that I took of a couple dancing at night on a city street, and is from my dancer series of paintings. I create a series of oil paintings for each subject that I paint, allowing me to be versatile with color and value, as well as subject matter. To this end, I enjoy painting landscapes, figures and portraits, as well as animals and still life.
