Fred Bell Spills his guts.
I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, my hometown. I started painting seriously with Henry Hensche at the Cape School in Provincetown, Massachusettes. I was there for six seasons. Later, 15 years living and studying in New York City, I studied at The Art Students League and The New School.
My paintings are mostly about the paint. I like it thick and the marks to show. It is applied with a palette knife and is a combination of oil paint and wax. The wax makes the paint thick, colors more rich and the texture swirls around giving the painting life!
