I’m seriously considering a trip to Portland in April. This looks like an amazing event!
As a kid I was always obsessed with the photo realistic paintings at the Toledo Museum of Art. As an adult, it’s still one of my favorite approaches to painting. Being able to trick the eye with the right colors and reflections is a truly admirable skill for an artist to posses.
Michael Ward, self taught from Southern Cali paints beautiful, stark and realistic paintings from photos he’s taken over the past 30 years. His use of color completely transports me to California.
