The style I paint in is known as Impressionistic Realism.  It’s a versatile yet challenging mode of expression through which the poetry of a subject is preserved and paramount. To find eternal balance in the elegant dance of light and form is my highest inspiration.  Through the congruence of our visual vocabulary and shared human experience, I am able to imply detail without overstating it. Brushwork and palette knife together create a textural Impressionism and paint quality which entice a closer look, while it is through a little distance that my paintings become Realistic portals into a time and place. Painted like memories of the “here and now,” they depict the variety of life in the 21st Century and often include man-made objects, figures, or animals. Through my work, I sincerely hope to remind and inspire others to take time to see just how amazing this existence is. Enjoy.

    Hi Susan, please use joshua.been.prolificpainter@gmail.com
    Not sure if you’re referring to the Prolific Easel, an older model no longer in production, or the Daytripper parts. Other wise, you may find what you need going here:

    No workshops at the moment. Definitely wouldn’t mind a Spring trip out there. Dismal around here that time of year.

    Hey Josh, saw the post you had up with the less than human scammer with the fake “John Cena” name. Just for your info, the same person, or maybe one of a group of people who are scamming, used that name and tried it with me about a year back. Did not work of cause, I feel for artists just starting out and are over the moon that someone wants one of their paintings and fall for it!! 😡
