Thanks for stopping by to check out me and my original acrylic artwork!
I’ve been painting since I was a young teenager with numerous breaks due to work, kids and business. I’m largely self taught although I did take semi-private painting lessons for a couple of years when I was a young teenager from a local watercolor artist. I initially learned to paint in both watercolors and oils although I quickly transitioned to painting with acrylics and today that is my preferred medium. During my teens and early twenties I lived in Connecticut and exhibited and sold my work often during the vibrant local summer art show season and in a few local galleries. I was fortunate to win numerous awards and ribbons and I even considered making art a career and going to an art college...But my parents convinced me to pursue a degree in Business Management which is what I did!
I have a BA in Business Management and spent almost 24 years in the retail home center business in management and senior management positions. One day in 2000 I was finally fed up enough with the corporate life that I resigned my position at age 45 to figure out what I really wanted to do. Soon thereafter I purchased a painting franchise (Residential and commercial painting) which I ran very successfully for 18 years. I sold my business in 2018 along with our home in Long Island, NY and we moved back to our home state of Connecticut where I was able again to really focus in retirement on my art and may other passions (woodworking, hiking and just being out in nature.)
I'm constantly inspired by the beauty of the world around me and I love to paint things that make me happy like mountains, waterfalls, birds, old barns and dramatic scenery. I paint in a realistic style in Acrylics. My hope is that my work strikes a chord with you, creates an emotion and in turn makes you happy!
I have a dedicated art studio space now in my home and often on nice days I'll move outside to the back deck to enjoy the birds and nature.
On a personal note, I've been married to my wonderful and beautiful wife Laurie for 42 years, We have three children (two sons and a daughter) that live in 3 different states that are all happily married and each of them are parents of 2 children so we have 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 18 months to almost 10. Two of my grandkids actually like taking "painting lessons" from me and we often do that through the magic of the internet! I post photos of these memorable times on my FB page "Skip Marsh Art" when it happens so please feel free to follow me there!
If you would like me to paint something for you, I do accept commissions. Send me a message and we can discuss it! Likewise please touch base with any questions, observations, requests or just to say Hi!
