This is a new feature that we are starting to experiment with. As we look for art for our clients and constantly find a dearth of original, affordable art, we have been inspired by a number of artists we know as well as by those who are enterprising enough to turn to the web to sell their work at a modest rate. This experiment is a predecessor to our upcoming store and is inspired by Duane Keiser and Julian Merrow-Smith.
This painting is by Dr. James H. Ryan, a psychiatrist who specializes in painting pictures of serenity (he also happens to be our father). His pictoral studies embody his approach to art, in which a calming influence comes from both the making of the art and the viewing. In his words: "Following after the Chinese impressionist Liu, the original image was found in a Christie’s auction catalog and quickly transferred to the canvas. This type of inspiration and imitation is a hallmark of my work and one that directs me to learn new skills in attempt to meet the masters." CLICK HERE to place a bid.
