Meet OOPS Artist... Mitchell Morton

Artist ~ Mitchell Morton
Born and bred in Onslow County! One of those rare people-finds! I began working in an artistic way as a young boy by carving my mother’s Ivory soap (recall the LARGE bars we used to get!). I continued to experiment over the years to develop my talent. I truly do not think we ever fully evolve to that final “place” to which we all aspire… I see it as a continuous journey in which we continue to quest with each passing day. My work is done in a variety of mediums – oils, acrylic, pastels, and mixed media. My first “en plein air” experience was in October ’07 – and it taught me to work very quickly due to the constantly changing light. Out of this comes the fact that you, most times, compete a painting in one, short sitting.

Hi Mitchell,
I am so glad to have met you in Michael's. I look forward to painting with the group. I will be out of town for the meeting in October at the Octagon House, but I will keep checking for future meetings. At least I will be able to take this time to refamiliarize myself with my tools!
See you soon.
