Today we were at a gallery to check out paintings by Robert Holcombe. Luckily for us, we not only saw some of his paintings but met the artist as well.
This is one of Robert’s contemporary paintings, strongly influenced by Fred Williams. He described his artistic journey from realist to contemporary and now abstract. He described his painting style and how he actually constructs the painting.He also talked about the subtle, but important, environmental messages embedded in his art. This conversation reinforced for me the value of moving from the superficial to depth – and how easy that can be when you are open to the possibilities.
