Their subdued glazes of color complement his paintings perfectly. “Several years ago, I started taking pottery classes at Springfield Pottery as a way to start my creative juices flowing again. Pottery has been great, but my background was in drawing and painting. In 2010, I did a sketchbook for the “Sketchbook Project” that really started my journey back to my roots of drawing and painting. As I did a lot of drawing, I realized I really wanted to paint. So, I decided I would start small and simple by painting 6″x6″ pieces of hardboard and using acrylic paints. I use photographs and drawings as reference material and paint at night, after work, on the kitchen table. I decided to enter a few juried art shows just to see where I was at. Just to see if I could get in. I was very surprised that not only did I get in, I also won a few awards. Last fall, I entered the (First Friday Art Walk 12th Anniversary Art Contest) at OTC Fine Arts Gallery and the director, Kat Allie, asked if I could do a show for September 2014. My journey back to painting has come so fast I am still astounded.” – Mike Meyers In addition to Mike’s show, OTC Fine Art also features Paintings and Drawings from Summer 2014 Classes in the Gillioz Theatre lobby.
