Steven W. Booth

I am a self-taught American contemporary figurative and aviation impressionist painter living in Los Angeles, California.

Mostly painting in oil, I like to focus on women, airplanes, beaches, and as often as possible, some combination of those three things. 

Some of the painters who have inspired me are Steve Hanks, Vladimir Volegov, and Thomas Saliot. I prefer subjects that convey a sense of movement, and while I have been known to paint landscapes, there is almost always something occupying the space.

As far as what I want to accomplish with my work, I have always said that I want the viewer to experience an emotion. It doesn't have to be a good one, it doesn't have to be an acceptable one, but I really want the veiwer to feel something strongly. What it is is up to them. 

When I was in high school, I used to keep myself occupied by drawing airplanes from different angles. I learned basic perspective, shapes, and shading in fifth grade. I didn't start painting on a weekly basis until winter 2016 when I discovered that art supplies are cheaper than going out to one of those bisque places where you paint mugs, and I could paint whenever I wanted. Art has always been a bit of a refuge for me, and now that I am painting regularly, I can't imagine life without it. 

My goal at this point in my career is to get greater exposure, perhaps through a contest or a showing, and start finding homes for my paintings.
