For David, the brush was the tool through which to tell the story. Carrying that brush with him, he moved his story to Korea and Vietnam, where the stories he told expanded, broadened, and deepened. Settling in South Louisiana as a young father and veteran, Wargo's story continued to evolve through the strokes of his brush. Teaching young artists for over thirty years, Wargo learned the value of telling stories through the work of his hands. The role of teacher is apparent as Wargo tells his stories in images.

The paintings capture a moment frozen in time and invite the viewer to imagine what comes after. Like a set design, Wargo's paintings offer a landscape upon which to envision the story of a place, a culture, a person, and event. David invites you into his gallery to see his many exciting creations using acrylics and other media.

Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, mediums, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.

Acrylics

Artist acrylics (professional acrylics) are created and designed to resist chemical reactions from exposure to water, ultraviolet light, and oxygen. Professional-grade acrylics have the most pigment, which allows for more medium manipulation and limits the color shift when mixed with other colors or after drying.
