I am a soul catcher…

My passion is painting people.

As I paint, I get lost in reckless abandonment, yet painting people keeps me somewhat grounded and allows me to continue my process of self-identity.

The better the connection to my subject, the more of “me” comes through on the canvas. It’s not that I paint my own features, but I reconcile parts of myself through the work.

My hopes, dreams, fears, adequacies and inadequacies are ever present in the strokes as the connection becomes morphed between myself and my sitter.

Sharing even a silent conversation allows me to respond to a certain twinkle in an eye or another personal expression that is uniquely them as I strive to portray the spirit of that person.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Artwork by Grahame Booth

I am a direct painter who loves to work from life, yet there are unique challenges that arise from doing so.

The decisions in knowing what to leave out or add to make a successful painting are part of that challenge.

To say enough on the canvas that the subject would see themselves but not over render is always a goal of mine, as well as producing something special each time.

I don’t want a photographic rendition, instead MY voice as a painter.

Typically the successful paintings come together quickly, fresh and with ease.

As soon as they appear to breathe on the canvas I know to stop.
