Paintings by James W. Stewart

Sat, Feb 23
Artist StatementJames W. Stewart I have always been surrounded by artists in my family, but didn’t discover the absolute pleasure of painting until I was involved in another profession. Over twenty-five years ago I picked up a watercolor brush, saw pigment magically spread on the wet paper, and was hooked forever.  My friends joke that I am an artist trapped in a lawyer’s body.  I love painting loose watercolors and thick rich oil paintings where the stroke of the brush is visible and the design of the painting can be seen from across the room. Although most people think I am a “realistic” artist, I like to explore the connection of “realism” and “abstract” shapes.  I don’t believe that there is distinct difference between realistic and abstract work.To me, a good painting that looks “realistic” from a distance is often just a collection of beautifully designed abstract shapes when viewed closely.I enjoy painting landscapes outdoors and still life, but I am particularly drawn to painting people, indoors or as part a landscape.
