Whether natural or man-made subjects, Michael’s still life paintings feature an arrangement of inanimate, everyday objects. His florals burst with color and are the perfect addition to add beauty to any room.
“While I have carefully studied traditionally trained artists like Sargent, I have also studied artists of the 20th-century Pop Art movement, especially Wayne Thiebaud. He is a painter who inspires me with his expressive use of color and extraordinary cityscapes. I was first introduced to Thiebaud while working on my BFA at Laguna College of Art and Design in Laguna Beach, California. Thiebaud’s influences are particularly strong on the West Coast, and I grew very interested in his color choices and layering techniques using oil paints. Moreover, his color selections are remarkable; every form he paints jumps off the canvas. His shadows are not gray but packed with colored pigment. Thiebaud’s paintings seem edible, and his color is rich and alive.” Michael Longhofer MFA
