Oil Painting - Portraits & Figures

After retiring from a career in social work, I decided to teach myself how to paint. That was three years ago. Just this year(2006), I started entering exhibits and juried shows, so you see how very new at this I am! Hope this site is here long enough for you to watch me grow! I welcome your input. Thanks.

I really like, "Morning Light." You do amazing work for just having taught yourself. I'm int he social work department as an art therapist.

Each picture is very unique and different from eachother. you're very good at capturing softness, depth, and emotion in the pictures you create. Keep up the great work!

Hi...just got your rersponse to you is to try not to figure out meaning...use energy for other things...meaning is inherent in would answer the question of what your life meant? Keep up your efforts in painting....and you may come across this road yourself ...about meaning and what it means to have meaning in a painting that comes from the painting or comes from your imposition of meaning onto the painting....

thanks again for your feedback....

sincerely Ralph Turturro
