This is a selection of paintings I do as commissions. That is one of the reasons why it's mostly figurative.
I use different tools and approaches to manipulate the colors on my canvas. There are so many possibilities to start a new paining and the result will be different according to the way you think: Shape, volume, colors, light etc.
I really enjoy the way oil painting represents figurative themes like portraits, landscapes and the overall atmosphere on a canvas.
The texture, brush strokes, smell and slow drying aspect of this technique are very unique. I can easily understand why it has been used for so long and still will be in the future.
When I paint for myself, it releaves me from different weights like stress, grief and pain for example. I can put pain into place for it to serve a purpose, there is a reason why you can say that there is pain at the beginning of paining.
