I was motivated simply by the desire to paint a winter scene. My efforts were led simply by the desire to represent certain colors. With brushes in hand and a general idea of layout, I let the painting take me on a path to its conclusion. Funny thing about water when it first freezes it's more like a mirror than a block of milky white ice that it eventualy becomes.
"First Freeze" 16"x 20" Acrylics on stretched canvas.
All work is created and painted by artist Steven Rockwell. Steven uses Imagination, memory, and assimilated photographic likenesses to create each paintng's subject. All work is hand painted using acrylic or oil paints and compatible additives. The finished paintings are full of impastos, textures, and/or sculpture like qualities. The resulting products have a "real time and space" presence that is visually stunning. No painting is made using computers or printers. Each and every painting is Guaranteed to be a hand.
