bob minnick expressions
I am an oil painter. I would consider my style expressionism. I like to paint still-life, portrait, and landscape. I also like to paint abstracts. in the future I would like to paint pictures that deal with social justice issues.
I started drawing when I was a child. I love doing it, And I still love making art. I had many good art teachers in school. The most influential being my High School Art teacher : Mrs.Shannon. She suggested I look into The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. I did and liked their programs. I applied, and was accepted into their program. I studied there four years, and was awarded a Certificate in painting. In the Annual Student Shows I was awarded the Franklin C. Watkins Grant, and The Scheidt Award ( a traveling scholarship to Europe). That trip to Europe was incredible! In conjunction with the Academy, I studied at the University of Pennsylvania. I was awarded a B.F.A. from Penn. That was 35 years ago, And i have been painting ever since then. I have been in group, and two person shows, the mixed times six group. My work is in many private collections in the Delaware Valley.
