Hi, and welcome to my ArtPal page, thanks for finding your way here.
I am a 58-year-old noobe artist that, up until mid November last year, had absolutely no idea I had a creative bone in my body. Discovered by chance (aren’t all good things in life coming along seemingly by chance) after being “pushed” by my wife to paint with her, as part of her rehabilitation from a stroke a while ago.
Talk about a life changing moment, for the first time I can remember, I’m loving what I’m doing, and doing what I love. I’m mindful and present in a way I haven’t been before, and not just when I’m painting, but in all other aspects of our new post stroke life. We live our new life in the present moment, and although we have less money and material things than we’ve ever had, (her health aside) have never been happier and more content.
I’m painting impressionist style landscapes, in acrylics on canvas trying out different brush stroke styles and techniques and discovering how it all works.
The first painting I ever painted after a few weeks of practising techniques, is Farmhouse1. It's 37cm x 45 cm on paper and was inspired by Van Gogh’s “Farmhouse in a Wheatfield",
I then made another version of it, my first painting on canvas 50cm x 60cm. It's called, unsurprisingly, Farmhouse2.
Some of my other work is listed here, and more is on my website : http://kevin-artist.azurproductions.com/
I've already sold a couple of paintings, and am working on a couple of commissions right now., currently, an interpretation of Monet's view of Monaco from Roquebrune painted in 1884 called "La Corniche near Monaco". A client has commissioned this and asked I paint it with a modern Monaco instead of the fishing village Monet saw in his day, so have just started doing it on a close to the original size 80cm x 100cm canvas. It's a BIG looking canvas lol.
Also, please take a look at my facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/Kevin-Artist-963954987074590/ and like, follow and share with your family, friends and colleagues.
Feel free to email with comments, questions, or an idea for a commission you'd like me to create for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks and best regards
