"I paint the environment that I live in."
My art has it's center of gravity in what is not actually visible. Like the feeling of "tension in a room between two people," the tension is the dominating subject but not at all literally visible.
Darren Thompson paints in oil on linen or panel. Usually working from a combination of photographs assembled together.
