Painting the Threads of Life

Roots - Oil

Roots 18x24 Oil on Linen Canvas


As a representational artist working in a tonalism style, my goal is to capture the essence of a person, the feeling of a place, the effects of light as it falls in a scene. But more than the obvious, I paint what I call the invisible threads of life; those things, those places; those characteristics of a person; the “thing” we feel that is invisible yet connect us together as people emotionally.  Rather than rendering subjects literally, I use the classical techniques of my craft as an oil painter to interpret and express my vision of them. I have succeeded in my goal when the beauty in something that may seem ordinary is found and expressed as a fine work of art. ~DBElmquist
