San Francisco resident Ed Terpening is a nationally known, award winning artist. Most of his work is produced "en plein air" (outside, alla prima), although he also produces larger studio works. Ed focuses on strong color, design and brushwork reminiscent of the Russian impressionists. In addition to his art, he produces a daily art blog, called "Life, Plein Air".
“Seascape”, Classic Artist Oils
“I've always tried to create images that 'work'. I prefer painting seascape portraits of my beautiful Northwest as well as lively still life images. I enjoy the discipline and tradition of a more realistic style, although occasionally I slip over into a more impressionist style. Classic Oils allow me the versatility I seek in my work and the intensity that I need to convey strong images to others. Lastly, if my art makes others happy or able to recall a fond moment in time, then I've accomplished my goal of sharing my vision. My work has been collected by both corporate and private clients, here and abroad”.
“May Flowers”, Classic Artist Oils
A deep appreciation for nature is at the heart of Jerry Greenberg's paintings. In his work he seeks to convey the landscape as he experienced it emotionally as well as visually. "It's all about light and mood and capturing your impression on canvas" he says simply.
