Oil on Canvas
by Brian Commerford
of Santa Fe, NM
Brian’s work expresses the spiritual qualities of the animals and birds by means of composition, color, and brushwork. As he paints, he tries to create a vibrational stamp that reflects whatever spiritual quality or qualities that he is trying to express in that particular piece. Brian uses a lot of close-ups to achieve a fairly intense experience, such as gentleness, joy, and love, to be felt by the onlooker.
He received his art education in California, at the California College of Arts & Crafts as well as Sonoma State University, where he received a B.A. in Art Studio. Brian follows the teachings of Yogi Parmahansa Yogananda, and shares an interest in the Native American medicine of the animals.
