To Frame Or Not To Frame

I’ve always viewed a completed painting, framed and all, as a complete “art object.” I never feel a work is truly finished and/or ready to be viewed until the right frame has been added.

In Praise Of The Straight Edge

Straight edge brushes were traditionally used by the sign writer and calligrapher. Now however, for the painter to leave this valuable tool out of his equipment is a great mistake.

Every painting is a mixture of the defined or the undefined, or as I tend to refer to them ‘mush’ and ‘anchor’. The straight edged brush is the perfect tool for painting in the anchors with freshness and simplicity, yet with accuracy.

Interview With Kathy Anderson

How long has art been part of your life?

It’s hard to remember a “start”. I’ve gone through so many stages – all the while keeping my easel painting going until I could finally devote all my time to it!

Interview with Vladimir Volegov

When did you first start painting?

I started to paint and draw when I was 3 years old, but didn’t know that I would be an artist then. I painted unconsciously, on a subconscious level, on a whim. I didn’t try to do something like everyone else, I just expressed my feelings through painting 
and drawing.
