Oil Paintings on Canvas and Wood Panels

My name is Robert Vincent and I have lived in the Northernmost end of the Great Sacramento Valley for over 4 decades. My email is   shastacraft@att.net    

My home and studio are in rural area outside Cottonwood, California about 5 miles west of Interstate 5. Some paintings have a Highway 36 sign, I live close to highway 36 and, like many others, am fond of riding my motorcycle on Highway 36 up out of Red Bluff.

Having been creating detailed art utilizing pencils, pens & ink and watercolors, I rediscovered oil painting  about a decade ago. Liberated and influenced by Bob Ross, texture and the complex colorful, chromatic effects of oil lead me to happy persistence of the  impressions you see.  

The paintings are often heavily textured and glossed. While I may paint similar scenes concurrently, there are no prints-each image is hand painted onto blank canvas or artist's wood panels, brushstroke by brushstroke, layer by layer. My studio typically has a dozen or more paintings in various stages of completion as the oil paint is artfully applied in layers and I like to let them dry a bit in between the layers of paint.

My oil paintings are all individually painted on stretched canvas, canvas panels, and special artists wood boards using quality long lasting materials. The images often depict calm vernal pools on a hillside that provides a dramatic vista. Perhaps it's the many hours I enjoy painting but I think of these works as places to imagine oneself, useful devices on a wall that allow a human a chance to rebalance their inner disposition and put things in perspective. As a registered nurse I strive to make my paintings beautiful and therapeutic, and a source of wellbeing that can be revisited.
