In the modern era of such diverse artistic styles, a realist painter is always encouraged to find a gallery that features representational art and wants to sell the work of artists who are committed to that genre. I am honored to be included in South Street Art Gallery in Easton, MD and to be presented as the Featured Artist this month.
The pieces that are presented represent the breadth of my work in figurative, still life, and landscape art. While my portfolio has largely consisted of oil paintings, I have recently developed skills in the medium of egg tempera and one of the offerings, Rainy Days, is my latest. Egg tempera is an ancient medium where the paint is produced by mixing raw egg yolk with dry pigment to produce a paint that possesses a unique visual quality. As the light hits the surface, it penetrates down through the layers of paint and captures the nuances of color as it reflects back into the viewers eye. Modern museums hold paintings by Michelangelo that were made with egg tempera so I feel confident that these works will last for many generations.
