My oil or acrylic works, mostly figurative, are first drawn on canvas using drawings & watercolors done on location. I don't use photos for I like the abstraction that began in the original sketches.
ABOUT THE ART
I am a grandson of Howard Ashman Patterson, a great American painter. I've traveled extensively for inspiration, painting landscapes and people in their environs. A graduate from Suny Purchase, NY, I've received honors in sculpture, painting & printmaking. I've received many awards and in 2007, I was honored to have a painting accepted into an international show at the Louvre in Paris.
