Frank C. Norvell, Artist


Artist Statement

I paint from photographs taken while living and traveling in Europe and the U.S.  I also develop still life paintings from items that were collected during these travels.  Other compositions are created from my imagination.

I use my engineering background to lay out my painting design for architectural and landscape works to ensure I get the necessary perspective and depth. I prefer working in oils because of the freedom it gives to be adventuresome with color and composition.  However, I do use watercolor to create sketches when I travel.

In Richmond Virginia, my work is exhibited at Uptown Gallery, Crossroads Art Center and The Visual Art Studio.  I am also represented in Irvington, Virginia at the Tides Inn J’s Gallery.  In addition to these ongoing exhibits, I also regularly have numerous on-person shows throughout Richmond.  My work is also in private and corporate collections in California, Maine and Richmond.
