Description Oil on canvas, 9' x 12'.I was driving home one night and it was one of those perfect sunsets where everything I saw looked like the perfect subject for a painting. I got home, grabbed the camera, and headed out to take my shots. By the time I got back to this spot, I got off one shot and things were too dark to get any more reference pics. There's something about the way the poles and wires cut across the rural landscape.
Harry Boardman, Telford Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I have been and done many things but the only one that fits is art. I have a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn but I don't really do what I went to school for (how many of us do?). The last few years have been about painting, drawing, getting messy, and staying that way. My amazing wife Heather is also an artist. She makes glass beads and handmade jewelry. www.hmbstudios.com We live in the woods of PA surrounded by farms, buffalo, trees, and beautiful views which many of my recent works are based on. Most of my work these days is either oil on canvas or ink & oil pastel on boards. I like large paintings with bold outlines, thick brush strokes, and color. Many subjects are traditional to this area's art history but my work tends to be more contemporary. I also paint do commissioned portraits of people, pets, buildings, your vacation pics...you name it.
