WELCOME THE THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF R. MICHAEL WALSH.
Referred to as, "a low-key cat who can paint his ass off," R. Michael Walsh asks his viewers to dig deep into the meaning in his paintings.
When asked how painting makes him feel...why do you enjoy it so much? His response was simple, "I feel like I have to do it. And life is cruel if I can't paint. When I complete a painting...I feel a sense of relief, only better. I feel, I don't know, proud. And like I accomplished something significant and it works and means something."
Mike has been asked many times why his paintings are large in size. Why does he "paint big?"
"Because it's right in front of you and you have to face it head on. There is no escaping or hiding."
