Art is never mute, no matter how distant in time the artist's act from the viewer's description of the result. Art is perhaps the greatest creative collaboration. What's communicated may depend on the mood of the viewer as much as the intent of the artist, but art always has something to say to the senses, the intellect, or the heart.
Robert works in watercolor, acrylic, oil, pen and ink, pencil, and multimedia, selecting the media to suit the subject and ultimate purpose of the art. His favorite subjects include architecture, interior decoration, landscapes, seascapes, and digital portraiture, but he is pleased to receive commissions specific to client need and preferences. He recognizes that art suitable for the boardroom is not what's wanted in the bedroom, that the room-dominating landscape can relate to the bedside vignette, and that sometimes a space's ambience calls out for a splash of the one color that will bring it to life. Whether he's capturing a moment, a concept, an activity, or an object, Robert's goal always is to suit the art to client use.
One of his favorite genres is coporate art, for he enjoys the challenge of capturing the excitement and satisfaction of successful commerce in pieces ready for the boardroom, executive office, visitor center, and passages. He particularly enjoys executing art to be given by officers commemorating employee achievement. To see a handful of examples of his corporate art, check out the "corporate art" tab.
An avid reader, Robert takes great pleasure in book illustration. A selection of pen-and-ink sketches from his most recent assignment may be seen by clicking the "book illustration" tab.
Whatever the subject, genre, or style, it's Robert's philosophy that art should be fun. He enjoys creating the art in his online galleries, and hopes that you'll enjoy viewing it.
