October goes


Autumn is such a spectacular season, full of color, falling leaves, cooler temps and all the bounty of fresh apples, pumpkins, root vegetables and the clarity of the light, and then October goes and Novembers enters.

Always in season, are wonderful landscapes painted by my dear friend Geoffrey and beloved painting prof. asked if I would mind to post his work for him as he has a few paintings.

Can you tell that he really is passionate about landscape painting. When I began attending classes, there were a few and now there are many paintings. I think some of them need good homes. It never hurts to ask, so if you or anyone you know might be in the market for some original oils, landscapes that show the force of life, the sheer beauty of nature....let me know. I thought I might just ask.
What a wonderful gift these would make. The above canvas is a "large" new work, not yet finished, but to see the process, and to appreciate the gift he has for all seasons.
Take a look at Geoffrey Barbey's site here. You will be delighted with his work.

Going to check out his site now. I do love fall paintings. There is something about them that says, "home."

Stlye Chronicle-
You will let me know if you are interested in any of his work, as I would love to see Geoffrey's work find fitting homes such as yours!

Maia,
you would love some of his scenes of the country and then some of his still life works are deep and dark like the old dutch masters.
He is a great teacher.

So beautiful, I'll keep it in mind, some of my clients look for artworks right now!

It is wonderful to witness progress in the artist's studio. You are lucky to see it moving forward.

Lovely again, Ms. PVE. One of my dear friends was a prix de rome fellow, but sadly never came to understand the marketing of art. I hope your grace and friendship and his talent translates into wonderful sales.

Sometimes this is the only way we learn about artists and their great work. Making a mental note and iPhone notation just in case of clients art wish list or need.

I love landscapes paintings. Can't get enough of them, really, and when I'm fortunate enough to be able to buy art that's what I tend to be drawn too. My dream is to save enough sheckles to buy a Hudson River School landscape.

Geoffrey's work is just perfect in my eyes. I would get lost in his studio!

An honest to goodness landscape is what is missing from my art collection. I am off to research his work further. Beautiful.
