Mike Myers Artist Statement: "Several years ago, I started taking pottery classes at Springfield Pottery as a way to start my creative juices flowing again.  Pottery has been great, but my background was in drawing and painting. In 2010, I did a sketchbook for the 'Sketchbook Project' that really started my journey back to my roots of drawing and painting.  As I did a lot of drawing, I realized I really wanted to paint.  So, I decided I would start small and simple by painting 6"x6" pieces of hardboard and using acrylic paints.  I use photographs and drawing as reference material and paint at night, after work, on the kitchen table.  I decided to enter a few juried shows just to see where I was at.  Just to see if I could get in.  I was very surprised that not only did I get in, I also won a few awards.  Last Fall, I entered the juried show at OTC Fine Arts Gallery and the director, Kat Allie, asked if I could do a show for September 2014. My journey back to painting has come so fast I am still astounded. I wish to thank Kat Allie for this opportunity."
