Wes, what's traditional art? Good question. But for me, it's the portraits, landscapes and rustic objects. Portraits are probably my favorite but I enjoy trying to capture the same personality and emotion in a landscape or object. Whether it's an old tree or a barn door, there should be a story to tell. I like to experiment with techniques; palette knife or brushes, thin or thick paint textures. It varies with the feel of the scene but I do lean towards texture, especially for landscapes.
