Bruce Mockridge

After leaving behind all the pressures and routines found in the business world I retired and began my artistic expression journey in retirement. It all started when I joined a senior citizen center in Rye New York. The center only allowed its students to use acrylic paints which was helpful to me in learning the art and skill of painting. This is where I learned the various techniques of brush strokes and mixing paint to make the canvas come alive.

Every day I paint, I learn something new and the quality enhances as I attempted to capture the visual passion found in my art. Over the years I have taken classes and studied under three instructors who have been very helpful to me in finding my own painting style.

Today my artistic skills have allowed me this opportunity to share my love and joy of oil painting. You will see that I have a unique artistic eye capturing on canvas images that will hold your attention and keep you engaged and entertained in the art you’re experiencing.

I welcome your comments and if possible leaving your email address so we can stay in touch. The most important of all is my hope that you enjoyed this experience and are able to take away the positive feelings of joy and love that I have put into each piece of art.
