Q: Where do you draw the inspiration from for the landscapes in your work? Are the places imagined or actual?
Regina Murphy: Many places are actual, some are imagined, and some are a combination of both.
Q: You have been in the art world for a long time and explored many techniques and mediums. Is there a certain one that you always fall back on?
RM: I always return to acrylics because of the fast drying nature of the medium. I am a very impatient person and paint rather fast, so acrylics seem to fit me best, although I still love oils and often revisit them.
Do you ever get stuck in a rut? What do you do?
RM: Yes. When that happens I just keep painting but the work turns out badly. Then, finally I get a new inspiration and go on from there.
