I've won prizes with synthetic polymer paint!
I had careers in science and business. So I taught and practised informatics.
My medium is digital. My computers run Linux. And I draw on a pen display. Painting software simply gives basic tools. Those aren't found in analog media. I added game backgrounds.
My art was therapy. I consider life drawing grown up. I depict life models in an art club. In an urban group, I sketch interiors and landscapes. And in an art club's digital work-group, I discuss that medium.
I'm a conscientious, abstract thinker. Experimenting varies results. My art explores technique and subject. It's more conceptual than realistic.
My colours are popular. And the audience is global.
Here are my recent digital paintings.
A technician made a CAD drawing of my project.

The artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms.
In this medium, pigments are bound in drying oil. I used to occasionally paint a portrait in an A5 visual diary.
My recent activities were viewed through a camera.
This was outdoors, with pigments suspended in water.
