November Art Show:
Artist – Guinn Powell . Guinn has displayed his art at the Oak Lawn Library several times in the past. He is a very popular artist.
I consider myself to be a true “Renaissance Man”. I see life as my palate, constantly changing with each direction that I’m facing. I paint because I feel the urge to create and document my life. My goal is to make my art a direct reflection of who I am. I aspire to convey this relationship to anyone viewing my work. To feel the purpose behind each stroke.
The circumstances, events, and people that I encounter in life are inspirations for ideas to put down on a surface. Those ideas become themes that inform choices in techniques and colors, until finally they boil over onto the canvas. The first stroke is always the most difficult. But at this point, it is a commitment I have to follow, a challenge to take on.
My current work is a journey of discovery into possibilities. I challenge myself to stay focused on the final stroke. The moment when I can look at a piece in progress and say to myself that it’s done.
