Ryan O'Connor

I'm a painter who typically works with acrylics, oils, and occasionally watercolors. I really enjoy painting animals, and I will occasionally paint people or self portraits. I first started painting Renaissance style pictures of my cat and two dogs. To me, this style of painting offers a sense of realism but also a lot of playfullness. I like to draw inspiration from great Baroque artists like Rembrandt, Le Sueur, and mid century artists like Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth. I work as a chef by trade, and when I'm not painting I'm listening to music or long distance running. Instagram: @ryanopaints
