DescriptionReunion: Inventory# 111111. Mixed media on 36 x 36' gallery wrapped canvas. Inspired by a recent reunion of highschool friends. It was great to see my friends again, some I have not seen in 20+ years. So much time had passed, so much of 'life' has happened...it was great to interact with everyone and catch up. We met for breakfast, then went bowling...It was great time and I'm looking forward to our next reunion!
Roy Vance, Richardson, TX Member Since May 2011 Artist Statement Roy E. Vance Richardson, TX
I was born in Ohio, raised in Florida and moved back to Cleveland where I received my Associate's degree in art. I currently live in Richardson, TX with my partner Chris and our loveable Maltese named Maxwell. I have been active in the home decorating / artistic field since 1992. While I received my degree in Art but never really pursued painting until 2005. It started as a hobby and took off from there!!! Since 2005 I have sold over 180 pieces through galleries, shows and commissions. I have been commissioned to create pieces for clients in Tampa, Cleveland and Dallas.
I enjoy painting and I find great reward in creating a special piece for someone based upon their design criteria (colors, size, budget). Depending on my mood (or my client's requests) I will add layers, textures and found objects for added visual interest. I like to try new techniques and experiment with different compositions. I believe that art, like life, is about learning, growing and sharing with each other. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it!
