Robert Holewinski paints realistic places with his own spin, and also throws in some fictional characters like Shrek. He currently lives in Florida and finds inspiration in the work of artists like Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Paul Cézanne. In his work, and that of others, he enjoys being able to see each brush stroke. Fun fact: he used to work for Disney.

I am very excited to announce that I have written and published my third book, titled "A Boy Nonetheless" A novel written in narrative poem format, "A Boy Nonetheless", tells of a young boy who decides to run away from home. The storyline combines his memories with his journey beside the brook and though the woods that he knows so well. Along the way he begins to understand what he is trying to run away from. A Boy Nonetheless is a very personal story letting the reader walk beside the boy as he leaves home to enter his woods where tales about the Picnic Grove, Skull Island, Sophia, a disappearing body, and the Bander Snatch exist. The actual location of A Boy Nonetheless is not critical to the story, but the story must take place in a woods with a shallow brook flowing through it. Maybe you know of such a place, and maybe during your own youth you considered running away from home. Let the journey begin… For more information and purchase, go to: www.RobertDenisHolewinski.com

I recently published my second book, titled, "The Ocean, the Treehouse, and God" whic is also available through Amazon Books and Barnes & Noble online. Here is a summary of this book: "The Ocean, the Treehouse, and God" is about Jonah, a young veteran who decides to stay in Ocean City, a seaside town that he has become very familiar with, for a summer three day holiday weekend. It is a story about what he experiences there and afterward. His story is told in three sections, consisting of the Ocean, the Treehouse, and God. Each relates in some way to the other two. The Ocean begins in the summer of 1971 during that particular three day holiday weekend. Roughly two years pass to bring us into the Treehouse. The last section, God, has no year assigned to it but rather covers many years and decades. Some of the poems are told directly by Jonah, while other poems are told from the perspective of selected characters who appear in the story. As far as the meaning and truth of Jonah’s story, that will be left up to you, the reader, to decide one way or the other.

I recently published a book titled "One Year There" about my year in South Korea during 1968. This was a critical year on the Korean peninsula starting with the capture of the USS Pueblo, the anticipation of a full war, the attempted assassination of the South Korean president by the north, the murder of ML King and RF Kennedy. My printed book is available through Amazon Books, or available for ebooks at Kindle.com. I appreciate any visits to sample or purchase of my book.

A number of people have asked about my working as a designer/artist for the Disney Company. I worked in Walt Disney World, Florida, and designed product, packaging, graphics, clothing during my 9 years there. It was a dream come true for me and I truly enjoyed my first 7 years there.

I find the hardest stage of creating a painting is at the very beginning, getting in front of a blank canvas or blank sheet of watercolor paper, picking up a brush. However, once the brush is in my hand and the tip touches the surface, all hesitance or fear vanishes and I am in my world. In my paintings I love to build up a surface of paint on which I can add further layers. It is these additional layers that give life to a painting where I can feel the surface and the brush stroke, with each brush stroke standing alone on its own merit. In this regard, I love seeing every brush stroke in my paintings and in the works of other artists. This usually causes people in museums to become a bit irritated with me because while most people view a painting from a respectable five or six feet away, I want and try to get so that my nose is almost touching the canvas so that I can see each tick of the artist's brush.

My painting titled 'Inhabitant Of Manville' , which was recently put on exhibit at UGallery.com is based upon an old black & white photograph of a person living in the town of Manville located in New Jersey. Sometimes referred to the 'asbestos capital of the world' by the residents, Manville was the home of the Johns-Manville Corporation. One of the their main products was asbestos board and fiber. Needless to say, this was not a very healthy industry to be involved in, but back before 1960 no one gave it serious concern when on some days depending on the wind direction a person would have to sweep a white powder off their car before driving anyway. The man in the painting and photograph is unknown, Just a resident or inhabitant. Manville in the past century was mostly Polish and Russian residents, and this seems clear when looking at the man in my painting. Manville still exists although Johns-Manville left town many years ago. The legacy of 'white lung disease' can be
