A narrow clearing in the woods lights up with soft afternoon sun, as though a spotlight from above. Deep reds and browns warm the verdant scene. "There are times when the best place to visit with God is simply away from everyone else and alone in nature," says Kent Sullivan. "Forest depths have been a shared conscience from artist to artist for thousands of years. King David wrote poetic in Psalm 96:12 - "Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.""
There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”

The painting was purchased because of its colors, the theme and Mr. Sullivan's profile. Mr. Sullivan thank you for this beautiful artwork which will be enjoyed by the family for years to come. The promptness in shipping this art work to me is appreciated.- M Sobko
I purchased Still Water Shadows. I just completed getting it framed and it looks lovely in my living room. Every time I look at it, it reminds of growing up in upstate New York. Thanks.- K Harrison
