About The Creation Process-
Painting on his oversized 4 ft by 8 ft easel, he begins with a large blank sheet of paper or canvas ranging in size from 16 x 20 inches (sometimes smaller) all the way up to a very large 36 x 96 inches. He creates various scenes from landscapes to portraits in a somewhat abstract expressionistic style yet with a "modern" flare. The signature style charcoal black lines shoot off in many directions and at various speeds conducting the symphony that unfolds.
....."When I am painting with lines of color, it is more than just visual stimulation. It involves all of my senses. I paint the way I like to paint, not how the world tells me." ~Shea
