Don Sinish, Essex, MD Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I started working regularly as an artist in 1971. This spring it will be 40 years. I try to not let a day go by without at least one session working on a painting or a drawing. In college I began the practice of carrying a sketchbook with me all of the time. I don't sketch much any more, but it's very rare that I don't have one of my current pieces and materials along with me. You never know where or when the occasion to get a little more work done will arise. I commonly paint and draw in coffeehouses and parks, just to get out of the house and talk to some humans.
Many years ago I started as an artist by carving stone. Over the years my interest in form has given way to a love of color. The pieces that excite me the most are about how three dimensional forms are created by color rather than changes in value. i love women and I love trees and flowers. That's me. I'd love for you to comment on which of the photos you would be most interested in seeing me paint. It's not a popularity contest, but it never hurts me to know what you think.
