Terry Best

Best-01 Best-02

I am an oil painter now. I switched from acrylics last fall and although it has been a bit of a steep learning curve I think I am getting the hang of it. I do landscapes mostly, but sometimes I mix it up with a portrait just for the challenge. I enjoy working on still life while in the studio. Currently I am employed as high school teacher, but painting is all I want to be doing full time when the retirement doors open for me.

I have been taking lessons with Cynthia Marsh in Clarksburg for three years now and have started lessons with John Anderson at the Bay School of Arts in Collingwood. I have fun with colour and struggle to lay it down and leave it. I still love to paint what interests me, but I find that shape and light are as interesting as colour and texture.
