Editorial Reviews


This is very beautiful and it just catches the eye. Also, the aesthetics of it is wonderful, the eye travels nicely over the whole paintings. --Jacob Duzan/Yessy website

Thimpu and Paro are situated in the valleys with lush greenery. It is difficult to know which season and climate it is. Unmarred by modernization and pollution, those valleys shelter rare flower and animal species.. The only feeling you get is enchantment. --Connection Newspaper/Fairfax --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Doing art has always been my means of communication I attribute my participation with the Art Students' League in New York to have influenced the development of my individual style. With numerous artistic workshops, I further continued my studies and when I later moved to the Washington D.C. metropolitan area in 1980. I have participated in several gallery exhibitions in my adoptive home of Fairfax, Virginia and nearby McLean, as well as several exhibitions in New York City, including a group shows at the United Nations Building. My paintings were well liked in Thimpu, Bhutan, during my stay there for three years I have received several Certificates of Excellence; placements in juried shows; and have also been included in the Encyclopedia of Living Artists - Fourth Edition. My illustrative style...somewhat two-dimensional, yet contouring enough to provide my portraits with a degree of solidity. My paintings are studies in composition, design and controlled color as exemplified by "The Question" and the oriental woman in "Daydreams". Rich reds and browns contrast the pale, ashen faces. My paintings are the vehicle through which I express my moods and feelings reflected in the color, form and compositions. Although I have created many portraits, abstract landscapes have become another favorite subject to exhibit my use of analogous and complementary color. Many of my paintings have rich, striking and bold color, creating an exciting contrast, while my florals are produced by washes of pastel color applied in a delicate technique. I have done a great deal of traveling, often times influencing the subject matter of my prolific collection of oil or acrylic landscapes and portraits.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
OK, I should have perhaps read the review more carefully, but this really is a book of color paintings (and paintings only -- that is not a metaphor) with annotations. So, I suggest strongly that the description indicate at least that a color Kindle is required. Also, the paintings are broken up into about 6 pages (non-regular sized images) so that even if you were interested in seeing the paintings in black & white they do not paginate correctly.

Now, the English. This book should *never* have made it through publishing. On each page there are about 15 mistakes. It was so bad it was hard to read. Capitalization either missing or added; punctuation abused; grammar not present; wrong words used; correct spelling absolutely lacking.

This book should not be purchased. This book should *not* be made available on a Kindle.
