About the Artist: David L Friend
As far back as I can remember, I have always expressed myself artistically and the process of creating things graphically has always been important to me. I discovered the world of oil painting when I was 11 years old and have never lost my love for painting pictures.
While I have loved and practiced drawing and painting almost all of my life, I spent much of my adult life working as an architectural drafter to pay the bills and support my family. That worked well …up until a few years ago when I was laid off due to the economy and needed to shift gears and find something else to devote my energy to.
Today, I'm a self taught artist living in Everett, Washington with my wife and family. I am empowered by a love of art and a desire to express my artistic vision using my business called 'Art and Imagination of David L Friend' as a tool to introduce and sell my artwork. I have a studio located in my home where I paint work that is commissioned as well as work on developing other painting projects that are of interest and importance to me.
My artistic viewpoint finds expression through the use of acrylic and oil paints with which I create unique abstract images on canvas and offer them to those who appreciate them.
I welcome your interest in what I do and look for the opportunity for you to have something I have painted or to create a work of unique and special importance to you.
I am determined to paint with the independent brush of imagination spreading the colors of creativity upon the canvases of opportunity.
