Blacktop

Blacktop was born and raised in northern Alabama but now lives in Northwest Georgia.  He is a self-taught outsider artist who has been painting most of his life capturing the wildlife near his home using water color, acrylics and photography. Over the years he has received lots of encouragement from his family and friends to keep “at it.” “In each of my paintings I attempt to tell a story that reflects an abstract rural South which is full of paradoxes and contrasts.   I love to express imagination, simplicity, and fun images which will make you smile and laugh.  Birds and animals are my favorite subjects.  Also, I have an undeniable passion for vibrant color, innovative form, and abstract interpretation.  As adults, we lead complicated and detailed lives, I want my art to capture a fun energy . . . to convey only the essence . . . color outside the lines and leave the details far behind.”
