Oil Paintings by Daryl
Art started young for me. My parents were fascinated with some early doodles and my 4th grade teacher loved my stuff, but I never followed through with any formal training.
I started surveying when I was young and got into the drafting and note keeping. This was back when these were actually drawn by hand. Nowadays most are computer driven CAD programs that don’t have the same appeal as the techniques I learned.
The women in my life have expanded my art world. The women have come and gone but the lessons endured. One summer affair in my early twenties was with a women from Massachusetts. She showed me Magritte. Another gave me a book, “Lust for Life”. Another explored museums with me and she being formally educated taught me about different styles. My life has gone through many different adventures but I’ve always maintained an artistic eye.
I’m always striving to be appealing yet be unique. I’m seek to understand all styles, materials and applications old and new.
I’m interested in Old Masters Academy because it’s about art! I would like to win because they teach what I want to learn. People may vote for whoever they want but a vote for me would not be in vain.
