"Four On Red" - SOLD
A while back, a reader asked me a couple of questions (in a comment) that I completely neglected to answer. I was going through my old emails today, found it, and figured I'd answer them here for everyone to see, and Sarah.
Q - If there was one thing you could point to that has helped you with your paintings over the years, what would you say that was?
A - Painting every single day (or as close to that as life will allow)! It's true, and I can't say it enough. There is no secret to painting - just hard work. If you paint every day you will gradually work out your painting muscle and you will get better gradually. If you languish, so will your painting muscle. : )
Q - What artist's did/do you admire and influence you the most?
A - Oh my gosh, where do I start!? It started with John Singer Seargent. What a master! Some other favorites: Burton Silverman, Kim English, Elaine Coffee, Karin Jurick, Jill Carver, Colin Page, Ted Goerschner, Larry Moore - to name a few.
