Paintings by John Schirmer

Just a few words about my paintings: You may wonder why my oil painting style doesn't blend with Paintings by John Schirmer my woodcut style. I painted a couple of paintings in the woodcut style and I didn't feel the bliss so I decided to go with a more representational style of painting Columbus Circle that I have loved ever since I woke up to art as a young boy.

My initial inspiration was the urban landscape but I can feel a new direction being born. Perhaps a closer view of people in the same setting. Who knows?

Stay tuned for the evolution of a painting style that just follows the muse.
I hope you enjoy the paintings ...
