Thanks for checking out who I am and what I've been up to! I've been an artist for over 50 years selling my work to collectors just like you all over the US and many other countries as well. Many of my pieces are in corporate settings as well as individual offices and of course homes like yours!
When you purchase an original painting or high quality print of mine, you will be enhancing your home or business environment! When you walk into any home or place of business that has fine art work, you immediately see that it has a positive impact on the room and elevates your experience of being there.
Here's what some of my clients have said once they have hung one of my pieces:
"Rosie & John, Thank you for putting up the beautiful painting of the NY skyline that I absolutely love & makes my home more complete!"
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with
Music, architecture and forms from nature inspire my designs. I have always been a musician playing professionally for many years. It's not a coincidence that many of my paintings use musical forms and the suggestion of music as part of the design.
When I start painting, I rely on the unseen forces that range from subtle whisperings to almost explosive, compelling energies.
The forms and textures in my designs are created first and sculpted onto the canvas. I then add color with acrylic paints and dyes. Transparent washes of dye are glazed over each other to get colors not otherwise available.
I use Trompe L'oeil (which means to fool the eye) to suggest three dimensions on a 2D surface. It is the treatment of shading, highlights, and the sharp edges against softer backgrounds suggesting 3 dimensional surfaces in real space.
I was given my first set of oil paints when I was 12 and had my first 1 man show with my paintings at age 15. I majored in art all through high school and college.
I studied art at Western Michigan University.
My first art show was the Ann Arbor Michigan show in 1971. I have done hundreds of shows since then winning numerous awards including Best of Show and Best of Category.
My wife, Rosie, and I have had 5 shops in resort communities and convention facilities as well as two galleries. We have been doing music and art together for over 40 years. She is the one that is putting this website together and will be helping you with your orders and everything.
