About Amos Westmoreland
I was deeply inspired by impressionist artist and lifelong friend, the late Gene Hege, of Lewisville, NC. With untold hours of intense observation and pertinent questions about color, light, composition and technique, I believe gave me an inherent ability to more quickly apply concept to practice. I have an impressionistic style utilizing soft edges and a loose "painterly approach" with both acrylic and oil paints.
Since retiring from R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in 2003, I paint at a shared studio in Lewisville, NC; as well as, an art studio in my home. I have extended my artistic abilities from attending various workshops with nationally know artists including, Carolyn Blaylock, Morgan Samuel Price, Frank Rowland and Camille Przewodek.
Every creative skill has an infinite learning curve. I have the basic fundamental skills to be a good painter. However, I am excited about the endless possibilities of becoming a better artist. I believe an artist's work should connect emotionally and/or spiritually with the viewer. That's what I strive for. That's what being an artist is all about.
