My Bio

 

Kevin Mizner  (kmizner.com)

I have been painting Maine and her people for over 35 years.  Everything I paint is from my own experience and observation, because I feel that authenticity and emotion in a painting cannot be conjured, it must be real.  I have worked on Maine lobster boats to better experience and portray the sea.  I have hiked countless miles through the Maine woods, and along her shores observing Nature's colors.   I can't paint "a Landscape" or "a Seascape," to me they are portraits of old friends I've come to know, understand and love.

My technique is based on traditional oil painting practices, with sketches and studies, both onsight and in the studio-- but I will use any trick in the book to make the best painting I can produce.  Because in the end, only the painting can tell the story.
