I actually spent 25 years not painting so I have a lot of "catch up" time to make! I am a self taught artist, inspired by the great artists from the past and present, Rembrandt, Johannes Vermeer, Joseph Turner, Dick Twinney, Clive Meredith, Steven A Bove, John Myatt, Jack Vettriano and Stuart Gatherer and more recently Janhendrik Dolsma and Mitch Griffiths.
I have spent most of my working life away from Art, just now and again painting a picture for a friend or relative. The more I painted the more relaxing I found it, not to mention the excitement of looking at the finished canvas and remembering that not long before it was blank!
In September 2007 I started to paint on a regular basis, from 4 pictures in the previous 25 years to four pictures in that first week of September 2007!
Finding art was my savior in life, without it there is something missing!!
I hope you enjoy looking through some of my work here ;0)
In 2013 I wrote my first fiction novel "The Darkness" (Available at Amazon Kindle Store). See http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00H8X8RV6 or http://www.pjhorton.com

Some originals are available for sale, signed prints available dependant upon size from me direct or you can get Cards and Prints from:

Original Artworks can be purchased direct from myself.

**** Although I no longer paint under the name of Paul Horton (due to the confusion with another artist of the same name) my early work up to 2012/13 can be found at the website below...

I wonder if everyone realizes how valuable it is to get a comment on a painting? Maybe we should go back to the "like" button?
I have met many artists through comments. Unfortunately, many gifted artists have left PIL. However, I still comment when I feel the need to help. I comment on... view answer
