On this page, I will display my most recent paintings, all acrylic on canvas. For more information about my paintings, please go to my artist blog: Jasonweaverartist
A quick history…
I’ve always painted…but I’ve just never been a painter. Fits and starts, trial and error, a painting here, then a drought…more important things like work and school consuming all of my time and energy. The phrase “I want to be…someday” had for so long been a phrase of mine that it seemed time would erase all possible predicates. It is often most difficult to understand in ourselves what we can so clearly see in others, that to be something or you must do that something. A certain leap of faith must be made, that when you pursue a dream, you must surrender to the consequences (failures and successes) of that pursuit. We often speak of the “starving artist” and this concept required fully grasping and then getting over for me to finally begin my life’s art pursuit. And so with much ado, I am now the artist, the painter, I always said I wanted to be. I’ve only just begun and I have no higher hopes than to simply paint for my own pleasure and that somewhere along the way, others too will enjoy my work enough so that I can sell a piece here and there to fill the belly on cold winter nights. There is no going back now.
Here is what I’ve completed since this journey began in earnest. Thank you all for being a part of it, especially those of you who have already helped put food on the plate. ~ peace, Jason
