Artist’s Statement:

This art is tough stuff. The more one thinks they know the harder it gets.

Practically on a daily basis, Denny can be found studying and painting in his basement (studio) in Martinsburg, West Virginia. His aim is 

to continue to improve his understanding of what it takes to make “art.” Although his abilities are diverse, some have called 

his style “Representational Impressionism.”  (Whatever the hell that means) It is important for him to translate information into a painting, rather than report that information as in a photographs.

Denny embarked on his career as a watercolor artist and after a long stint he has found that has found a different new love, in Acrylics on watercolor 400 lb cold press paper. Now over 500 of his paintings are in 382 individual and corporate collections in the US, Canada, and Europe.
