Naomi Grindlay

Naomi GrindlayI’m a lifelong student of oil painting and have a love for painting people, still life and landscapes. I home-schooled on-line, learning to paint in oils. There are several artists I learned from. Each Painter bringing something invaluable to the On-line classroom.

Inspiration, I believe, are gifts bestowed upon us from the Powers that Be.  A new canvas excites me and intimidates me at the same time. Light and the way it affects color, is my daily obsession. Every time I pick up my paintbrush, I learn something new. As Edgar Degas Pointed out ~ “Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do” 
As a life-long student of oil painting, my goal is to learn to paint masterfully. For the Viewer - I wish to give you a sense of peace, harmony and light 
My greatest influence and teachers are artists I admire and who’s work I study on a regular basis. I love John Singer Sargent's loose contemporary style, his work has always inspired me.
