Landscapes by Frank Larson


ARTIST'S HISTORY
Once a successful corporate graphic designer, Mr. Larson got in touch with his talent for painting the landscape after a three-week session at Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. Under the suggestion of his instructor, Gretna Campbell, he went outside to paint; the spark was ignited, and Mr. Larson soon abandoned his career and headed north to Vermont. He now paints year round out of doors, full-time. Mr. Larson exhibits throughout New England and internationally and his limited edition prints are represented by Scandecor International of Uppsala, Sweden. Mr. Larson is featured at Robert Paul Gallery.

"Larson's landscapes rush across the canvas in great paint laden brush strokes--as ravishing to the eye as Puccini is to the ear. The artist separates color into its component parts, much the way a prism turns ordinary light into a rainbow and boldly heightens reality." Burlington Free Press
