He also likes to do portraits of people that are famous, whether it is famous artists or famous musicians. He likes to paint scenes that remind him of the 60's and 70's, in which he grew up in as a child in the 60's and as a young adult in the 70's which were times in the past that was all about peace on the home-front, with a sense of freedom, which in a lot of ways, were no where near as complicated as they are today. To have a painting on the wall of ones home with this setting, is a constant reminder of peace and love and how it used to be, and how it can be again, with just a little effort, to at least make it that way in the art collector's home and life.
This is what artist Matthew Woodall wants to establish more of,..showing a time when peace and love was a real possession for people during those times, and as he says, "they can be again, if you want it to be."

This is a blog post that Matthew wants to establish as an avenue into his paintings and ideals and virtues of friendliness, and love and peace, among like minded people of all times, past and present. And having witnessed and lived through 'the height of a peaceful and loving time' in history, he tries to convey this in his paintings.

We hope you enjoy seeing the only ones that he has taken photos of, which were only about 7 paintings out of so many that sold in the gallery stores before he could get a photo of them and a list of all the buyers for references. In the coming months and years, he will get photos of all his work and a list of who they were sold to, for some of the ones he that sold so quickly are the ones that speak so loudly of his abilities as an artist.
"This painting is just a little painting that was more of a study on peoples expressions, while thinking heavily, or meditating." - Matthew
