Toby Salkin

I believe I was born with a paint brush in my hand. I paint in oil and I mix my own medium which adds to the pow of my canvas. I enjoy almost every aspect of the painting from the preparation to the finished product. I say almost because there is that moment when I think "what is this thing?" I then take a break and meditate and then with fresh eyes I go back to the canvas.
I love color, as you cab see from my paintings. When I begin thinking about a new painting, which usually comes to me at 4am, I think of the positive space as well as the negative. I start with a drawing and I am always anxious to transfer it to my canvas so I can begin the wonderful dance of colors...starting with red.
My work can also be seen at Topanga Canyon Gallery, Topanga, Ca.
