Doron Lichtman Member Since October 2012 Artist Statement I am self taught artist who started painting in 2009. I wanted to paint earlier but always had the excuse of following the main stream that most people do, called life. With bad health, I became house bound and painting saved my sanity. I have since taken a few basic classes for drawing and painting and fallen in love with it. Today I paint all sort of subjects that catch my eye and mainlly my heart in, Water colours, Acrylics and Oils. I also sketch with pencil and charcoal either indoor or when I feel better ‘En Plein Air’ as they call it. I am always open to learn from others but for some reason end up with my own interpretation and style. I get great joy seeing people appreciate my work, even more if I encourage others to take a brush and paint and try it for themselves. I find it very expressive and a great way to peacefully communicate with others. There is no better experience than waking up each morning and being able to step into a colourful canvass garden, Enjoy.
