Indian Head Farmer by Francis Marte

I find inspiration in many subjects - people, nature, architecture, dreams, history, and childhood memories. Once I identify my subjects I employ careful observation and paintings skills to create a painting that has a strong and believable resemblance to my subject. Hopefully, I will be able to reconstruct the relationships of colour, tone, form, and space to create a vivid image that is engaging. My work is my passion. Painting is about visual intimacy. It is tasting the world with my eyes. It is studying, exploring, analyzing, and experiencing nature; connecting my eyes, my intellect, and my emotions. Realist painting, for me, is the process of immersion that involves contemplation, exhilaration, frustration, deliberation, and spontaneity.
