Michael Holter - Laundry Day

My paintings are my interpretation of the world I see. Always with a recognizable bit of reality that is the springboard for the painting to evolve. I am inspired by the way light describes the features of interesting people, architecture or the natural wonders of God’s creation.
Along with the underlying concept of good design, color becomes a major tool to express emotion or structure, and is one of the main building blocks of my work.
I want the viewer to enter into the painting and linger with me as I explore the landscape or the character of the subject's facial features. Each painting that I work on is an adventure that is unique and different from any that have gone before. Since I paint with an impressionistic attitude, even if painting the same subject multiple times, the result is something completely new and often, more expressive than a previous version.
