Fawnskin Art is a one man operation, and the small studio was flooded in winter storms. Andy Campbell will be doing his own remodeling, and since he is old and slow it will take several months to complete. Until that time all Fawnskin Art business will be done on the website.
I start with one idea and the project evolves while painting, losing myself in the process to create imaginary places in times that never were. In some of the paintings, people and other things spring to life with stories that I change during their creation.
Oil, acrylic, and water color along with pen and ink are the mediums used. I work on canvas with different types of panels, along with heavy watercolor paper. Watercolors are mounted in presentation frames as soon as they are dry to protect them.
My art is inspired as I hike, walk, and backpack in remote wilderness areas, colorful deserts, and ocean coastlines. The works are directly influenced by the sensory experience of nature: plants, wildlife, rocks and other formations, clouds, sky, colors, shapes, sounds, smells, touch, and solitude.
None of the paintings were damaged during winter floods, and are now residing in Palm Desert in my home studio. I am set up to fill orders and ship from Palm Desert, so website orders are unaffected.
