Artist Statement

“I am an artist and designer. I practice and share my craft. I continually work on the skills I need to make insightful statements and advance my ability to see. My style of painting allows the viewer to participate in the painting itself and imagine much. The overall design: colour, center of interest, values, gesture etc. are fixed before I start painting, but once I start, new patterns emerge from brush strokes and colour mixtures.”
 About the Artist

Bob is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA) and the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC). He works in oil, charcoal and watercolour.
