I recently found an artist online who knows how to speak my language: that of sexy, furry, masculine (not to mention hung) older men. I managed to get in touch with Danny for an interview for the HOM blog. Danny is a very friendly and intelligent guy. I enjoyed interviewing him almost as much as I enjoy looking at his paintings of hot and hung daddies... almost.
CR: I understand that you are mostly self-taught. How did you get into painting?
DB: Yes, I am mostly self-taught. I painted for 25 years until I moved to Florida 6 years ago and decided to go to college and get some art training. The classes were great and did give me new ways of looking at things and the classes also helped me technically. I got into painting when I moved to Los Angeles from my small town in Louisiana in my mid-twenties. I saw this big giant art store one day and it fascinated me. I went in and couldn’t help but buy a few brushes, paints and canvases and started dabbling. Dabbling in male figures of course.
CR: I'm always curious about the process of an artist. How often do you paint? Is it something that you are drawn to doing?
