Dan Robinson began to travel the road of a painter, a journey he set as he received his education at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena CA. Beginning in the fall of 2009 this blog was started with the idea of continuing to pursue the craft of painting by completing small pieces quickly, allowing for experimentation and discovery within the visual language of paint. Dan has been an invited artist in such shows as, Plein Air Painters of America; Dixon Country; The American Art in Miniature exhibit at The Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK; The Phippen Museum in Prescott, AZ and The Albuquerque Museum in Albuquerque, NM. Dan has been the recipient of numerous awards including The John F. and Anna Lee Stacey Scholarship, the Grumbacher Gold Medallion and an Award of Merit from The Oil Painters of America.

Great depth in this painting I keep and going to the little exit of light on top of th apple. A good composition and good soft light.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, simply beautiful!ReplyDelete
Beautiful painting! Your brushstrokes bring an impressionistic quality and your composition is really interesting. I like the turned up paper and the apple just a bit off the paper. The blues seem to tie it altogether. And the little blue highlight on the apple is like the icing on the cake.ReplyDelete
This is an incredibly piece Dan. The composition is masterful, the colors rich and harmonious and the whole execution is outstanding!ReplyDelete
But you make simplicity look so easy! A great blog Dan. I really love your sense of colour and mood, both of which are complimented by an inspired sense of composition. Delighted to have stumbled across your works.ReplyDelete
