Every coastal view leaves its own impression on the observer. I could not wait to get back to the studio and paint this glorious scene. I painted it with a series of glazes, and finished it with impasto highlights. I am asked from time to time if I ever get burned out. Never. Painting for me is an energy source. It fills my tank and wakes me up in the morning. This painting is on a stretched canvas with stapled edges and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Kent

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!”
