Howard’s impressionistic oils reflect, clarity and simplicity: ultimately his artistic strengths. He is always experimenting with color and subject matter. He loves artistic drama, the excitement of dynamic lighting, and sees paintings everywhere he looks!

“Finding fresh inspiration has never been a problem for me, because I don’t dissipate energy in competitiveness or seeking approval. It’s an ongoing quest to perfect what I love most, painting, and of course the wife and cat. I believe this is why I have a good collector base. I work hard at making my technique, color, and feeling seem simple by focusing on the important parts of the painting,” says Carr.
