Artist Exhibit: November/December 2019


"I have been painting in oils for well over 50 years beginning with lessons from Stanley Malik at the Holyoke League of Arts back in the 50's.  I painted as often as possible during my high school years, and later during my service in the navy.  After I married my wife, Donna in 1971, my painting endeavors became more sporadic while we raised our family.  Forced into early retirement in 2004, we turned my son's old room into my studio where I started to seriously paint.  Over time, I embraced the impressionist style, preferring to capture the mood of a subject rather than to record infinite details.
This past July, I made a trip to Paris, France where I visited the L'Orangerie, the D'Orsay and the Marmattant Museum to see the impressionists' collections.  I also spent a day at Giverny, Monet's studios where he spent the last 44 years of his life.  It was the trip of a lifetime! 
Over the years, I've been very fortunate to exhibit and sell many paintings at various locations throughout Western Massachusetts and now I look forward to showing my work here at Atkins."
