Paul Polson's Artist's Statement and Show Images
A TOUCH OF THE NORTHWEST.
For this show at the Hoffman Center for the Arts, I want to present the sights that have most influenced me in this beautiful area. This opportunity will allow me to share it with the community. There are many amazing artists here and I hope to present a view and choice of subject matter that is unique to my style and vision.
Although I have worked with many mediums, oil painting has always allowed me to produce the colors and permanence I strive for. Having painted for at least fifty years, this medium and palette has become a part of me. While drawing and water base paints became a constant vehicle to study and explore the world, oil painting became my culmination where I bring everything together into a finished piece.
