HOME MERCHANDISE ABOUT CONTACT

In the fall of 2016, I was introduced to art for the first time since middle school. I had not picked up a brush or even a crayon (with the exception of coloring with my nieces) in so long that I couldn't even recall having ever done any real art. Yet, as I began sketching and painting that fall, I discovered a passion and aptitude for art.

I began with pencil sketches and moved to colored pencils. Next, I worked briefly in watercolors. I even dabbled in pastels for a short time. Moving into acrylics, I found them to be more realistic but I still didn't feel I had found my ideal medium. I hestitated to get into oils because of the mess and use of turpentine and paint thinner. Then I discovered water mixable oils.

Since July 2017, I have worked primarily in water mixable oils and I must say that I find them so fulfilling. The works I have produced have a realistic and professional quality that I never thought I had within me to produce. I hope you will enjoy my gallery of artwork and if you are interested in any of my works please contact me.

God bless,
Christopher J. Rossman
