Keith's Paintings

TeaTimeThere are many artists who seem to struggle with their artistic identity, trying on different styles like clothing to see what fits, but Keith Goodson is no longer one of those artists. With a quiet confidence, and a breathtaking collection of heartfelt pieces, Keith has emerged as a driven and passion-filled artist who also has a mission; to inspire others to see beauty in the world, and to fulfill their own God given talents.

Keith became self-motivated, studied tenaciously, and explored the works of many great artists, including Goya, Vermeer  and Michelangelo which greatly infuenced Keith. What inspired him about these past greats was the fact that they did more than paint, they changed the world with their art and they left a legacy. “The best artists have been visionaries, and they painted out of passion and not obligation,”
In the beginning of his career, Keith says it was all about challenging himself and proving himself, but once he got passed that, his truest art began to emerge. “After you master your technique, then the real expression comes out,” Keith says. “I still challenge myself with new materials and new ways to produce fine art.” For example, Keith says he creates paintings with acrylics made with polymer materials because he is still able to produce the same quality and depth you would get by using oils. “Modern day materials have evolved,” says Keith, “I enjoy creating high end pieces with materials that are not traditional.” This is proven in his collection of work that depicts fine metals, and glass capturing light that explodes off the canvas. Keith describes what it is like working on one of these paintings, “I remember what I was thinking on each stroke of my brush, each square inch of the painting holds a slice of my memory.
