In the Art Bar: Steinar Kristoffersen

As an artist, I try to choose subjects that inspire me and add life to the painting process. My hope is that the emotion and energy I experience while painting will be felt by the viewer. While my goal is always to create a beautiful image, I am equally interested in the traces of inspiration, emotion, struggle, resolution, and satisfaction that are revealed through physical brush strokes left on the canvass.

In the Art Bar - Paul Blum

After 40-some years of a rewarding but stressful career in nursing (32 years as an RN at Skagit Valley Hospital), I retired in 2008 and began painting in oil.  Where nursing involved control, exactitude, planning and attention to detail, painting allowed me to loosen control, to experiment, to play without restraint or concern for consequences.
