As an oil painter with a background in animation and video game art, my passion for story telling on the canvas comes to the forefront with characters and lighting.
As an organic progression after first painting a tiny frog named Beau, a world of characters has come to life known as Friends Along The Way. Together, they explore their world, they have adventures that bring discovery and they meet new Friends Along The Way.
"I want people to be happy when they look at my work, so I create stories that personally make me smile or laugh. But I also want people to notice the technical side of my paintings. I put a lot of emphasis on lighting, composition and color when I paint. I think all of these aspects ultimately play a role in determining the emotional outcome of a finished painting." Rob Kaz
