Paul Strisik

My last post was about a painting that I copied from a 8x10 print, but had no idea who had painted it. Stapleton Kearns left a comment saying he thought it was by Paul Strisik. I wasn't sure who Paul was and so I looked him up. Well, the only thing to say is "Wow! What a wonderful painter!" And also "Wow, I need to work a lot harder!" These are two websites featuring his paintings Welcome to Paul Strisik's Web Site and Paul Strisik (1918 - 1998). The sense of light in his paintings is so elegant. He studied with Frank Vincent DuMond, who was a legendary teacher at the Art Student's League.

This is one of Paul Strisik's paintings from Greece.
