Gina Strumpf International Artist
Live Event Artist ~ Resident Artist on Cunard Line " Certified Golden Artist Educator "
As far back as I remember I've had a pencil in my hand and a vision in my mind. I'm happiest when I stand before a canvas!
My painting style is best described as Modern Impressionism, painted in rich oils. alla prima.
No matter the size of my canvas, from small Plein Air studies to large 48x60 studio works, I love painting wet into wet and will normally stay with the canvas until its complete, letting the work sit a day or so afterwards to see if I've missed a clearing mistake. Years of painting en Plein air has taught me the lessons of quick observation, capturing the essence of the subject and always editing. My goal is to relay the excitement in my work, to the viewer, that first captured me, sharing a moment in time... I am loving life and living my dream. I am happy I can share this journey through my paintings. Let me be the example, it’s never too late to follow your path, to follow your dream! To do the thing your were born to do. I look to each day to stand before my easel and create beauty. Boy do I feel blessed!
