Relativity

11×14, oil on masonite, $500

This is the view from one of my favorite little Mexican restaurants. (When I think food, it's almost always Mexican.) I've painted this view several times from different vantage points around the place. This one is from a photo, not plein air.

About Don Barnes

For me, there has always been some kind of art. As a youngster and teen it was drawing. In time I turned to music. I've kept that up, but painting has become a more common form of expression for me now. The Rockies and big blue skies of Colorado offer new inspiration all the time. My biggest challenge is making enough time to keep up.

My approach to painting is to begin as though this piece were a gift. Each painting is prepared and refined as if for a close friend. This, I think, brings a rare intimacy to my work.

 A few years ago I began experimenting with pallet knives. I enjoyed the clean strokes and sense of immediacy that they can offer. Over time, I've developed techniques which allow me to present both abstract and representational works.
