A fast, colorful art style and technique calling for paint to be randomly splashed, thrown, and/or poured on canvas. It's the way I pay tribute to, and hope to update, the great abstract expressionists of the 20th century.
A Friend told me...
“How? How do you do it? Your paintings make me smile and my heart happy every time!”
"My work is highly gestural, colorful and spontaneous, as I try to capture and convey the magic of a single moment in paint. I work mostly in acrylic and pastel on canvas — I’ll often rough out a composition in a sketch on paper beforehand, then start laying down paint. Sometimes, I just dive in.
I tend to paint right out of the tube, mixing colors directly on the canvas and adding in a lot of water for effect, to blur and blend. I’ll fairly quickly throw, squirt, smear, smudge, spatter and flick paint to create a scene that expresses motion, light and energy.
I tend not to title my works, because people like to see different things in the often messy images I create, and I don’t want my thinking on the piece to crowd out someone else’s interpretation of it. I love to hear what people think of when they look at a piece, because they almost always help me see something new in it, that I did not even realize I was putting there." ~Ron Rollins
