Artist Interview: John G. Woodard
What are your earliest memories related to art?
I became interested in art in 1991 and began to experiment with beginner paint sets.
How and when did you start becoming an artist yourself?
I began to study under a Beaumont artist specializing in landscapes in 1992 and continued those studies for approximately one year. I continued to study independently and read and observed from sources connected to the subject matter I wanted to paint.
What is your process like?
I tone the canvas then identify the horizon. From there, I select a subject matter and begin painting from my imagination.
What do you try to control in your surfaces, and what do you leave to chance?
I tend to let the work develop as it progresses.
Where do you see your work going from here?
I continue to study and explore information that will help me grow as an artist and I plan to refine and promote my work.
