79 - Steve Pi: Interpretation of Beauty

March 7th, 2014

77 - Robert Ross: Off Duty

February 19th, 2014

Robert Ross: I seek to portray the beauty, mystery and hidden life of the ordinary in natural and human-made environments. I am drawn to the space between things and how it can suggest absence, relationship, yearning or becoming. My paintings often convey a quiet stillness, a sense that something has just happened or is about to happen, the hint of an unseen presence. While good design is my starting point, more and more I see form as simply a vehicle to transmit the pleasures of light and color. Check out http://www.robertrossart.com

Larry Moore: I’m an artist, for the most part I paint outdoors, what we call en plein air, which is a fancy french term that means “outdoors”. I’ve been doing this since the mid-80′s and have only recently started to feel like I am in the early stages of figuring it out. It’s a lifelong journey, this figuring it out thing.
