    Default Renart's Artwork

    Over the months, some of you have asked what kind of painting I do, so I thought I'd show a couple of things I've done recently. While I've never had formal training in art, I've been lucky enough to study two weeks year for the last 5 years with a master. He teaches the techniques of the renaissance masters. Gosh, there is so much to know! You have to train your mind, your hand and most of all your eyes to paint in this manner.

    The first painting is World of Wonder and is a salute to all teachers and parents who nurture in their children the desire to discover and understand the word around us. It's oil on panel, and is about 30x24.

    Hope you enjoy it. (Hope this works!)

    Chris...your last link has wpnder instead of wonder...but the painting is absolutely beautiful, and probably even more so in person! The faces are wonderful. Full of light and warmth!

    Glad to see you're still here!

    This was the other painting, also oil on panel, called Magnolia Morning. I took some pics in the Duke Gardens and worked from them. The smell of coffee and magnolias was heavenly! The image is much crisper than this - wish I didn't have dialup! Then I wouldn't need to compress stuff.

    OK, note to Steve Bass: you must post your Canada photos. They could probably pay for your closing costs. More beauty!

    Destructo - you could offer these beautiful works (and yours) on the Tweleve shopping site! Eclectic Notecards by Tweleve Talented People, or something like that.

    You're all overachievers. Glad to know you!

    Wow Renart, those are simply gorgeous. Do you use a camera lucide or camera obscura, as the Renaissance masters themselves did?
