LPAPA Signature Artist Member Mike Hernandez
of Valencia, California
LPAPA’s December 2017 featured Signature Artist Member of the Month.
A native Angeleno, Mike Hernandez is a plein air painter skilled in gouache, oil and acrylic, who’s works have been featured in several on-line publications as well as galleries. His process began as a young child, painting still life images. Influenced by the likes of Edgar Payne, Sorolla and Franz Bischoff, Mike soon explored the foundations of color and light in the outdoors – striving to find the beauty in the ordinary.
“As an artist I strive to find the beauty in the unexpected. I like to think of it as reconstructing all of the puzzle pieces of reality.” — Mike Hernandez
