FREE OILS DEMO: Contemporary Russian Impressionism with HENRY STINSON. June 3, 2017. 11am-12:30 pm

CONTEMPORARY RUSSIAN IMPRESSIONISM
with HENRY STINSON

FREE OILS DEMO!
Saturday, June 3, 2017
11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Henry tells us, "I paint both the humorous and serious. A lot of my paintings stem from images in my childhood geared around an accident I had where I was electrocuted and died behind the couch—literally! Plus, my entire family is now dead. Mom, dad, brother and sister. This definitely has had a dramatic impact on how I view life and look for meaning."

"I love the physical act of painting because of the challenge I have working to create the vision in my head—to manifest emotions and feelings through the use of color and iconic/symbolic images on the canvas. Life is symbolic. The symbols of life mean something different to each viewer. No two people view a canvas in exactly the same way. My vision is to try to capture my unique view—in all of it's fleeting glory and message—and convey it in as direct and beautiful a manner as possible."
