Brad Haugaard " The Artist"


About Brad

I started painting because I didn't want to jump out of perfectly good airplanes.

It happened like this...

A coworker was getting together a group of people to go skydiving. Would I like to join them?

Uh, no thanks.

But it got me thinking. I was getting in a bit of a rut. I really should try something different.

So instead of going up, I went down; I took a scuba diving class. I was fine under water but got sick to my stomach on coming up.

So, what could I do that was different? Hmmm...

Painting! I hadn't done anything artistic since finger-painting in second grade, but I took a class at the Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre and fell in love with it.

I like the interplay of light and shadow, with a bit of mystery when I can manage it.

I hope you like my work.
