Welcome to Sam Clayberger Art Studio
Being an artist is a joyous endeavor. Starting with a model, landscape or internal idea that moves me, I take the artwork far enough to collect the visual information I need. Alone in the studio, I expand the image beyond the visual facts. Simplification, mood color, exaggeration, non-literal color and intensity are the devices I use in the search for that elusive moment when the painting and my heart says, "Yeah, that's it."
