Sherwood Gainer likes
to envision potential
then try to create what
is in his mind.
Sherwood and his brother
learned from their father
the skills to use tools, as
well as a drive to make, modify or change products to suit one's needs.
It was not until middle-age did Sherwood, looking at the blank walls of his home, perceive a need to make art. He picked up a paintbrush started experimenting with shapes, colors, textures, application methods, and all manner of ideas to try to make a canvas visually compelling and interesting to look at.
Today, Sherwood dabbles in a variety of artistic pursuits. In addition to painting, he has released several CDs of original music, created music videos and short documentaries, and done a bit of photography and writing.
