Dave is a self-taught artist who has painted some of the most beautiful landscapes I've seen. He works in acrylics and incorporates "Bob Ross"** techniques in his work. He masterfully portrays a pastoral, idyllic mood in his scenes.
Pictured at the top is one of many amazing lighthouses he's painted. From this work I was inspired to "paint" my version in cardstock. (below)
I plan to feature more of Dave's work in future posts, thereby stirring your creative nature.
**Bob Ross was a noted artist and host of the PBS show, The Joy of Painting, where he taught viewers his techinques, using the "wet-on-wet" style of painting in oils.
