Galina Herndon

My art is a way to communicate.  I use color, energy, and movement to connect emotionally to the viewer.  I often paint with a sense of nostalgia, both personally and more broadly. 
I primarily paint with oils on canvas because it allows changes during the creative process.  At times, I'll see a different, better image while I paint. 
I like to use a palette knife in addition to traditional brushes.  I also work with acrylics on canvas and paper, and drawings on paper using ink, charcoal, and chalky artist crayons. 
I would describe my style as semi-abstract.  My subjects remain recognizable, but I bend perspective and distance to add energy and motion.
