Words from the Artist

David Castle paints abstractions infused with unexpectedly rich and vivid colors.  His art is inspired by the variety of mountain and urban terrain he has explored throughout his extensive travels in North America and his years of living, working and traveling throughout Europe during his former career as a computer scientist.  David draws from his exposure to the colors and shapes of these very different places as he combines paper, brush, water and oil, color, air, surface tension and gravity to create each painting.

As a constant innovator and experimenter, David’s painting “process” inspires him nearly as much as his beloved trees and coastal horizon lines comprised of sea and sky. David has his own multi-layered techniques for abstract painting as he mixes oil paints, pure pigments and watercolors. David is a former corporate technology guy and has studied with a variety of artists in North America and Europe.  David has completed a variety of large-scale commissions for private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and England.
