VIRGINIA PALENO, BIO/STATEMENT
I am a painter of rich color and light with an impressionistic approach to how I see things and render them in a painting or drawing. My mediums are oil, acrylic, conte crayon and pastels, pen and ink, but experiment with raw materials on canvas. I enjoyed doing art throughout my life but have not earned any degrees. I paint for the experience and self discovery. I am strongly inspired by Manet, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Degas, Wm. Metcaff, Phillip Leslie Hale, and some more contemporary artists, such as Karen Tarlton, Thierry Henniquin, and others. I am 65 years old and have always loved art, the 'imitation of life'. Although I work a regular job, painting is my passion and part time hobbie. Some day, I hope to give more time to my development as an artist.
