Crawford Fine Art


As a fine artist, I show mainly traditional oil paintings: landscapes, still-lifes, and commissioned portraits. These paintings are, in a way, a visual journal. They represent my perception of experiences that I have had, places that I've been, people that I've met and known, as well as images that have existed only in my imagination. For each of my paintings, I use different methods of oil painting to achieve the desired result, depending upon mood, subject, size, and lighting. I may paint strictly alla prima for energetic brush work, or employ techniques of the impressionists for greater color vibration, or I may use techniques from Italian Renaissance painters to achieve richness and depth.
