Petite Gallery

George Caleb Bingham, Fur Traders Descending the Missouri, ca. 1845.

I prefer maritime subjects mostly because I enjoy the way water reflects the sky, the coast, and the weather. It mirrors the shapes of objects on its surface and intensifies their light. I paint outdoors to capture the light first hand and bring out all the color and luminosity. LEONARD MIZEREK. [1]
