I am primarily self-taught although I am trained as a scientist. I have painted most of my life and the only time I had taken off was during my university studies. My two areas of concentration are landscapes and surrealism. I have a favorite saying; three out of ten of my paintings have something that I call "It". I hope I have presented here some of these three.
I tell people that I paint because; "that is what I do". For myself, painting in front of a canvas represents total freedom. One of the ironies of my art career is that I am color-blind and I have learned from people's reactions what is most realistic.
I had painted watercolours for almost 15 years, so moving to another water-based medium(acrylics on canvas) was not a great leap for me. My website can be accessed at www.sheldongoldmanartist.com . All my art is priced in US dollars on this site and shipping to the lower 48 states and Canada is included.
I have been painting full time from my home in a suburb(Maple) north of Toronto Canada since March of 2013.
