Greg Nielsen's Profile

About

As an artist, it's my goal with my art to spur the imagination of the viewer without having my paintings necessarily look like a "real" place or object.
I often use acrylic on canvas and on smaller paintings I like the smooth texture of hardboard - or very small, watercolors on a good heavy watercolor paper.
On most acrylic paintings I probably take off as much paint as I put on.
Most of my paintings evolve - rarely do I start with a particular subject in mind. Never do I sketch anything first. I think that's what ABSTRACT ART is all about, being spontaneous - not getting in the way and overworking it.
I enjoy the freedom of abstract painting and NOT HAVING TO STAY WITHIN THE LINES.
