TTA Breaker

My "Times and Times Again Series" of drawings and paintings were created at the end of the modern period, as it is sometimes termed, characterized by Picasso, et al. I love the loose style and strong instinctive emotions displayed in the thin paint with spontaneous drips and the instinctively charged "slings of paint". Most of all I like the overtones of metaphysical and psychological philosophy. I do have more of these to post.

This series is shown on Saatchi Art only. See link at the bottom of this page.

In a complete reversal of my earlier style, The "Chesapeake Series"of paintings are smaller in size, visually realistic, mostly landscapes of Chesapeake Bay and its near environs, and done in water based gouache. They bring the remembrance of the smell of saltwater, and a sense of spiritual understanding through observation of those who make their living directly from the water.

Having left the lowlands and moved to the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, I again changed my style to the one I currently use, oil on canvas in bold strokes with undiluted paint. Subjects are primarily scenes of my rediscovered local environs, as I am not far from where I grew up. I love visually exploring scenes reminicent of my past as I become better acquainted with the spirit of belonging to one certain place.


 

BIO

While growing up in Princeton, WV, my mountainous environs always intrigued me. Even so, I spent most of my life working in Virginia’s coastal cities. My wife and I had an advertising agency there for a number of years until 2002, when we created a publishing company for the purpose of publishing and marketing our own novels, titled Rebel King. Told in three volumes, the saga was about Robert the Bruce, King of Scots, who fought for and regained Scotland’s usurped independence in the early 1300s.


In all of that time I was painting. My styles and media varied from one “period” to another, and representative examples of several can be seen here: http://crbruce.com


My commercial work has won well over a hundred awards and I have shown my paintings in such venues as Lincoln Center and a gallery in Soho, NYC; galleries in Virginia Beach, VA; Charleston, SC; Chicago, IL; and many other venues.


Now I have returned to the Appalachian Mountains and again varied my style. My current medium is oil on canvas with a bit of a bolder stroke, and the subjects are primarily scenes of my mountain home.
