Conrad Jon Godly’s Mountain Paintings Drip from the Canvas

When looking at Swiss painter Conrad Jon Godly's mountainous paintings, it takes a moment to truly appreciate the incredible skill behind what seems to be such an effortless application of paint. Up close the landscapes appear to be a thick, almost random mix of blue, white and black, the result oils mixed with turpentine to create a thick impasto that Godly often leaves dripping from the canvas. Take a few steps back (or...

Michael J Palladino - Paintings

Art has been a passion of mine in which I have channeled my energy and emotions for over the past 5 decades. With the use of brushes, oils, watercolors, pastels, strokes and color I have created an area in my life that I cannot enter into except for while creating art. There is balance between the delicacy and strength with the use of art mediums I have been able to extract art from my mind and soul. Website: http://michaeljpalladino.com/
