2018 Plein Air Paintout Juror Mark Farina
My goal in painting is to translate what I am experiencing before me onto a 2-dimensional surface with accuracy, emotion and creativity which hopefully causes an emotional reaction in the viewer. I work hard to improve my skills. Drawing, composition and harmony are the ingredients that I strive to master. Of course perfection is always elusive. It's the journey that all painters are compelled to travel. These are the elements that I look for in other paintings regardless of personal style or subject mater.
