Renaissance [ren-uh-sahns]: The activity, spirit or time of revival and renewal of life, vigor, art, interest, etc.; rebirth; revival; awakening.




For me, painting is a vehicle for exploring and expressing beauty and truth. I work from Life, preferring to paint my subjects in person rather than working from photographs. I find that painting from life causes an interaction and exchange to occur between the painter and that which is being painted. It's an intimate experience regardless of whether I'm painting people, places or things.


This section of the Renaissance Life site is where I (Colt) write on art, creativity, relationships, spirituality; Life. All opinions and views here are my own. My heart and hope is simply that you might benefit from reading these "Written Words".
