Artist of the Month (August) - Ralph Slesinski

Ralph Slesinski
1950 -
I have worked in oils, colored pencil, watercolor and prints of various sorts since childhood.
My main focus has been on landscape, mainly local subjects, but also taken from images captured
during travel and from the media. My idol is Matisse, who, in his later years, gave us images that were semi-abstract,
yet endearing to the eye for their naturalness and clarity of form. Like him, I hope to express and inspire with a stroke, a line, a color never seen before, rooted in the natural world.
