Paintings and Drawings by Skip Van Lenten

About


I am a retired housepainter, and being self-taught, always a beginner when it comes to art. It’s more about the process than the product. I like the quiet time and peace of mind that comes with creating something of my own when I'm drawing or painting. I do watercolors mostly when I’m with my grandkids, and acrylics for something quick, but oil paintings are a challenge. They require a higher level of problem-solving, mentally and artistically, and I like that, too.

I sell a few items now and then on Etsy, but if you have any questions about paintings or portraits, you can reach me by texting (201) 406-3933, or skipvanlenten@gmail.com.

30 Stories and A Little Adventure is mostly a collection of true short stories about my childhood growing up in northern New Jersey in the 50's and 60's when it could still be considered a rural area, followed by later experiences that were directly connected to those years.
