Burton Hanna creates unique, original palette knife oil paintings.
I'm grateful for the ability to use oil painting to record some of the beauty that surrounds us. Oil painting for me is not only a way to record the sights I see, but the paint allows me to express my feelings and some of the spirit I feel in the places I get to visit.
Palette knife painting with oils allows me to mold paint and light into an exciting composition that I hope will evoke feelings in the viewer that are akin to my own feelings when I’m painting. Whether the feelings are awe and inspiration or serenity and peace, I find I can express them using color, tonal values and compositions to convey those feelings to the viewers of my work.
I work hard to be the best I can be and to provide the best art I can produce. I use the highest quality materials and tools. I will continue to improve and develop my style and technique in my journey to artistic excellence.
