An example of fine art by Michael Kornblum

In 2007, after working with wood as a fulltime artist for over twenty years, I decided to start painting.  During my lifetime I have always worked with my hands doing something artistic; drawing, crafts, fine woodworking, and carving.  It was just a matter of time  that I turned to painting.  I have taken lessons at the Springfield Art Museum for several years.  I love to paint and plein air painting is the most enjoyable form of painting.
I have also taken instruction at Ozark Technical College and taken workshops given by nationally known artists such as master artist Albert Handell, Joshua Been, Todd Williams and Missouri artist Michael McClure.  I am a member of the Springfield Plein Air Painters,  Springfield Regional Arts Council and National Oil/Acrylic Painters Society (NOAPS), Visual Artist Alliance of Springfield.
