From the Journal of Milford Zornes
When I was sixteen or seventeen years old, I was in the habit of drawing, but I had no thought or intention of becoming an artist. I thought about travel and exploration, and I was obsessed by the lure of far away places. The further away and more remote the better.
The Art of Milford Zornes
While primarily known as a watercolorist, Milford Zornes painted numerous oils over his long and successful art career. Zornes painted several of his oils with a thin texture allowing him to approach his oils in somewhat the same way he approached his watercolors. However, many of his oils are thick and rich with color expressing the same vibrant feeling as with his watercolors. The number of oils remaining is few but here are some of my favorites.
