“It’s the journey, not the destination,” says Chatham artist Michael Martin, “A lifelong pursuit of painting has guided my expression goals.” Mr. Marin focuses exclusively on oil painting enjoying the inspiration from many of the old masters. The adventure of applying paint to a canvas provides the inspiration to this artist. “I use palette knives at key points in the painting in order to let the colors mix visually,” he says, “Keep the shadows cool and transparent, but apply opaque highlights. The painting has to move the viewer. Landscapes, still-lifes, portraits…I enjoy them all.”
