Art is the soul of imagination.

Where it all started

This plate is where it all started. Prior to this plate I did the traditional thing and painted only on canvas. One morning I awoke and decided I should attempt something different. Somehow I came up with the idea to do plates and told my wife to keep a look out. Whle helping my brother in law move she rescued this plate out of his things to be thrown away and so it began… This plate is fairly basic but it gave me some practice and some ideas going forward with how to deal with certain problems such as working on an uneven surface. I prefer to paint a stamped plate and if the plate is bent or warped slightly that is even better. In my opinion those imperfections only serve to give the plate character.
