Red Truck Productions' Paint by Numbers for Adults
First, where are you from and what do you enjoy the most about this place?
I was born and raised in Belleville, IL. The most enjoyable things are my family and my friends.
Where are you the most inspired to paint? What inspires you the most to paint?
Outdoors, experiencing nature and sunlight.
What is the story behind your subjects? What do you prefer to paint?
Growing up spending time outdoors. Nature has always been my favorite subject to paint.
When did you discover your talent? And was it because of a person, an event, a specific situation?
As a kid I knew I could draw and paint. My mother was very artistic and creative.
Can you tell us about your favorite setup to paint? (morning coffee, late evening jazz…?)
Mornings definitely and listening to ‘80s music.
Do you have a fellow partner (a dog, a cat,…) when painting or do you prefer being alone?
My yellow lab, Toby, was my painting partner for years. Unfortunately, I spend most painting alone now.
Can you explain how different is your painting technique from the acrylic paint used with paint by numbers?
I spend a lot of time layering paint and blending as opposed to “filling in the blanks” with one color.
Do you have a piece of advice to share with a beginner regarding… a technique, an angle, an equipment?
Use good quality paint, replace brushes regularly, and prepare your work surface correctly.
What is your funniest memory about painting?
“Paint with the artist” has been favorite part of events benefiting wildlife organizations. I spend time with individuals with little to no painting experience while they assist in putting the finishing touches on a piece.
