Skip Lawrence

Bio: William B. (Skip) Lawrence received a B.F.A. degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art and M.A. degree from Towson University.  His book, Painting Light and Shadow in Watercolor, was published in 1994.  Skip is editor-and-chief of The Palette Magazine.

Artist Statement: I love everything about painting. I love feeling the paint, seeing a rich color spread under my brush onto a surface and the play between colors coming together. I love watching my idea take form  until a painting finally says “it” and I am surprised and delighted every time. I love sharing my art and knowing that someone is moved by it.
I see no hierarchy among realism, abstraction, non-objective painting styles.  I see only the relationship of colors, shapes, surface and line that either thrills or bores me. When these elements come together to communicate an artist’s intention to the viewer, to connect with someone, it is nothing short of wonderful.
