Andrew took his first oil painting lesson at the age of ten and has been painting ever since then, albeit sporadically. As a professor of Spanish, he finds that oil painting serves as the perfect antidote to the type of analytical thinking required of him at the university. For Andrew oil painting is a highly intuitive and purely creative act. He explains that a weekend of plein air painting takes him away from the cares and concerns of everyday life and puts him in touch with the miracle that is nature. Focusing on composition, value, color, and brushwork, he gives his rendition of what he sees before him—be it a landscape, seascape, or still life.
