It's like a slightly muted photograph. The rich colors are what drew me to this painting. I like it.

Artist Statement
for Jay Moncrief
Jay MoncriefI started painting in the late nineties, I paint in acrylic, watercolor, and oil. There is nothing I know of that is more relaxing or rewarding than creating a beautiful painting from a blank canvas. The world today is too fast paced and hectic, through my painting I try to create a world that is peaceful,and I paint places that I would like to be. I paint so that people viewing my paintings can feel a sense of peace of mind when they look at them...the same peace of mind I get while painting them. Thanks for looking. If interested in buying one of my paintings please contact me at
As I've never used oils before, is there something that should be done to the picture after painting it?
