I have been making paintings since childhood. Many of you know of my WaltersDogs Custom Portraits. Lately I have been making paintings of Horses, Spirit Elk and Abstract Landscapes. I have been showing them at several Galleries, but some of these Paintings I have available for sale online. Once purchased, I will ship the work to you anywhere in the US free of charge. I also produce Custom Work on Commission, the photos above are of commissioned work. If you would like to commission a work please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Limited Edition Archival Prints of all of my work are available on the Prints page.

“Painting is a peculiar miracle that I need to have again and again. I do not literally paint the horse, but the emotion it produces upon me. I focus on movement, texture and light. My goal is to recapture the mysterious by discovering the internal and external world anew. My renderings focus on emotive effect, rather than manifesting a sense of true physical space. I look at an animal or plant and I see shape, color and tone. Then I find those that will make the work alive and vibrate. I have neither rules nor method. I look to art for a direct experience. I revel in the drag, the smear, the splash and flow of liquid color, in the physicality of the strokes. The shapes and hues assert themselves and interact with one another, as if in conversation. What I am seeking is not the real and not the unreal but rather the unconscious and the instinctive. I start a picture and I finish it. I don’t think about art while I work. I think about life.”
